Mark Satchel was appointed as Corporate Finance Director in August 2017 following Tim Tookey’s appointment as Chief Financial Officer of the Company in preparation for listing. Mr Satchel joined Old Mutual in the UK in January 2000 and has held numerous leadership positions within the finance function at Old Mutual plc and in the operating business units. He joined the Board in 2010 on his appointment as Chief Financial Officer to the business (then branded Skandia). Mr Satchel remained as a director of the Board until 14 March 2018. Mr Satchel has been responsible for the disposal of nine businesses in Continental Europe, and played a lead role in the acquisitions of Intrinsic and Quilter Cheviot. He was instrumental in implementing the Group’s successful business model and helped scope the footprint of the business which has led to the development of a business that is now fit for an independent listing.
Prior to his current role, Mr Satchel was Chief Financial Officer for Skandia’s Europe & Latin America Division, and before that he spent a year in Sweden on the integration of Skandia into Old Mutual. Mr Satchel qualified as a Chartered Accountant in South Africa, and worked for KPMG in both South Africa and Canada prior to moving to the UK.
