Vitality has appointed the managing director of sales and distribution at VitalityLife as deputy chief executive of its investment arm.

Justin Taurog will take up the position of deputy chief executive at VitalityInvest with immediate effect, but will also continue to manage the delivery of the VitalityLife channel.

Mr Taurog is expected to focus on operational plans and growing the VitalityInvest business, including the delivery of a direct-to-consumer channel later this year.

The insurance company has made several other organisational changes across its VitalityInvest and VitalityLife businesses, including an extension of Andy Philo’s role as director of IFA distribution.

Mr Philo’s remit now includes employed distribution channels, including network relationships, exclusive associates, the key account manager channel, the VitalityInvest employed business consultant channel and the digital business consultants team.

Sales director Justin Garbutt is now responsible for Vitality’s Franchise channel across Life, Health and Invest as a multi-product distribution channel.

Sally Burrowes, director of legal and business support, has also taken on additional responsibilities, with the VitalityInvest specialist team now reporting to her.

Herschel Mayers, chief executive of VitalityInvest and VitalityLife, said: "These organisational changes will make our VitalityInvest and VitalityLife propositions even stronger and will be integral to our continuing success as we extend our investment solutions to the D2C market as well as expand and develop our adviser offering across both businesses."
