General Insurance Standards Council (GISC)

Eamon Slevin, managing director of Barclays Insurance Dublin and general insurance director for Personal Financial Services, has been appointed to the GISC’s board.

Slevin is also chairman of the Association of British Insurers’ Creditor Insurance Claims Committee.

His previous insurance-related roles include assistant general manager at Friends First and group accountant for AGF Irish Life Holdings, a general insurer in Ireland.

He said: ‘I am proud of this opportunity to contribute to the GISC board. Barclays places great importance on customer service, and this focus is emphasised by its commitment to GISC, both as a regulated business and by my presence on the GISC board.’

Intelligent Finance

Intelligent Finance (IF) is integrating its sales and marketing teams, and has announced that Ian Jeffery will lead the new, 60-strong team. Formerly sales director at IF, he will take on the new post of sales and marketing director. Jeffery has 25 years experience in sales and marketing within the financial services industry, and has been at IF since its inception. The job is Jeffery’s third start-up position in which he has devised a strategy for working with intermediaries, having implemented similar systems at Britannia Building Society and Standard Life Bank.

Angela McIntosh, marketing director at IF, is to retire at the end of August but will remain with the bank as a consultant until the end of the year. She said: ‘I know that I am handing the baton to safe hands in Ian, having worked with him at IF since the beginning and also in a similar role at Standard Life Bank.’
