"Iain is well placed to take over from Mark Myers and take us forward. Mark has been an excellent CEO and his time here has been very successful for us."
Current CEO Mark Myers announced in September that he is standing down in 2017 after nearly seven years in the role.
Iain joined British Friendly in September 2015 from LV=, where he served as Managing Director for Protection. Previously, he also held sales director roles at both Legal & General and PruProtect.
Iain Clark commented: “The British Friendly ethos is centred around serving our members and making sure their best interests are a core part of everything we do from application to claim stage. A central part of that is creating products and services that make it as easy as possible for advisers to highlight the importance of Income Protection with their clients. It is such a pleasure to work for a company with these principles and why I am so pleased to be able to accept the role of CEO at British Friendly. Mark Myers has been a great leader and I’m looking forward to building on all the invaluable work he has put in over the years.”
Chris Radford, Chairman at British Friendly, said: “Iain has brought a huge amount of energy and experience to British Friendly since he arrived last year and we have gone from strength to strength by innovating and showing strong sales growth. Iain is well placed to take over from Mark Myers and take us forward. Mark has been an excellent CEO and his time here has been very successful for us. Everyone at British Friendly wishes him the very best for the future.”
