Openwork has appointed Paul Bridge as its chief operating officer.
He replaces Mary-Anne McIntyre who was recently promoted to CEO.
Bridge has over 30 years experience in financial services and joins from Aviva where he was interim change delivery director within life and pensions.
He has also worked for companies including Bupa Health and Wellbeing, where he was director of UK change and technology, and others including Barclays, Invesco Perpetual, Allied Irish Bank, Scottish Widows and Ernst & Young.
Bridge will assume responsibility for Openwork’s partner facing support functions as well as delivery of Openwork’s strategic change programme including platform delivery.
The move follows last month’s appointment of Mark Duckworth, previously commercial development director, as managing director of distribution and marketing.
McIntyre, said: “Openwork and its advisers are about to embark on a period of significant change and Paul’s experience of guiding companies through transformations will play a vital role in ensuring our members are fully prepared for the challenges ahead.
