TAL has appointed a new chief executive of group life and retirement.
Jenny Oliver has been appointed to the position and will be responsible for leading TAL’s partnership with the superannuation community in providing life insurance solutions to super fund members.
She will also lead TAL’s work in the development of solutions that support Australians to retire with confidence.
Oliver has worked at TAL for over 20 years, having joined in 2001 as a finance manager and most recently has spent four years as the firm’s chief claims officer.
She will continue to provide oversight for the claims function while a recruitment process is undergone to fill the role.
It has also appointed Hinesh Chauhan as chief information officer and Fiona Macgregor as chief executive for individual life.
Chauhan is currently executive general manager of technology while Macgregor is chief information and innovation officer.
Tim Thorne, who has worked as chief commercial officer for individual life since November 2013, will retire and pursue a non-executive career.
Managing director and group chief executive, Brett Clark, said: “These leadership appointments to group life & retirement, individual life and technology reflect TAL’s unwavering commitment to our customers and partners and I am delighted that it has been an obvious choice to appoint these roles from within TAL, reflecting our commitment to leadership development and succession planning.
“I would also like to thank Tim for his valuable contributions to TAL over a decade and his leadership of the individual life business through a period of significant growth and change.”
