Patrick Granger, who previously worked as head of distribution and business development at Aviva, has been tasked with developing relationships with corporate advisers for Standard Life.
Mr Granger will report to Martin Trenchard, head of the partnered business development team, and will be responsible for supporting corporate advisers.
Mr Trenchard said: “Many large employers will be looking to their corporate adviser for on-going support and advice on their employee benefits strategy.
“Patrick and the team are working closely with these advisers to ensure they maximise the return on their clients’ benefits spend.
“Patrick brings with him a wealth of knowledge of this sector, having spent 25 years in the pensions, benefits and investment markets and we are delighted he is joining our team.”
Mr Granger said: “As other providers find it increasingly difficult to compete in the post-RDR landscape, Standard Life has shown considerable vision in leading the market through product innovation and a solution-based approach to the large employer space.”
