Chief Customer Officer | LV=
I have 25 years experience in Financial Services across a range of roles covering direct distribution, brand, marketing and digital. At Aviva and now at LV=, I have lead significant change in the organisations moving the customer interactions and services to digital first. This has involved big cultural change at the heart of the organisation.
Previously to this I have led the direct channels for general, life and health insurance with full P&L accountability. I am also of course a big champion of the voice of the customer in the organisation and lead customer conduct on behalf of the Executive team. Some of the most memorable moments have been leading on the re-brand from Norwich Union to Aviva and delivering the single customer view across 16million customers. It is with pride I now lead the LV brand and digital transformation.
