Roger Edwards, managing director of Bright Grey and Scottish Provident, is now on gardening leave.
In an email to contacts on Friday, Edwards said that when his gardening leave is fulfilled he would be pursuing “future opportunities and dreams.”
Edwards said: “It’s over 12 years since six of us started building Bright Grey (with six chairs and six mobile phones), and it has been an amazing adventure and experience. I have met and worked with some inspirational people. And then once Bright Grey was launched along came Scottish Provident again and I had the chance to once more work with old colleagues.
“My future thoughts are focussed on marketing, social media, speaking and teaching yoga. But I don’t think I will entirely leave the protection market behind and look forward to working with some of you again.”
