Quilter appoints John Gill as non-executive director for its UK platform business

9 August 2018

John Gill has been appointed to the board of Quilter Plc’s UK platform business, Old Mutual Wealth, as a non-executive director.

John joins Quilter from Standard Life where he was UK & Europe chief risk officer, a role he left in 2017. He joined Standard Life in 1986 and during the 31 years he spent at the life savings company fulfilled a number of different roles including managing director of finance, managing director of customers operations and chief executive of Standard Life Bank. From 2006 to 2012, John was also a non-executive director at the Scottish Financial Enterprise.

Quilter’s UK platform business, Old Mutual Wealth, is part of Quilter Plc, the new name for the Old Mutual Wealth group of companies, since it listed and separated from Old Mutual plc. The group businesses will be re-branded to Quilter over a period of approximately two years following separation from Old Mutual, with the Old Mutual Wealth UK platform set to become Quilter Wealth Solutions.

George Reid, chair of the board of directors for Quilter’s UK platform business, says:

“John’s significant experience within the industry, across a breadth of different roles, will make him an asset to our board. We are right at the beginning of the next chapter of our group after recently listing on the London and Johannesburg stock exchanges and I am delighted that he will be on hand to help guide the UK platform business.”

John Gill says:

“The UK platform market continues to grow at a tremendous rate, driven by changes in the retirement market. Quilter has one of the leading advised platform businesses in the UK and I look forward to helping build upon this success and helping to ensure customers continue to be served in the best possible way.”
