Royal London Asset Management (RLAM) has increased its sales team with the appointment of Lorna Hutchison in the newly created position of sales and marketing manager.
Hutchison hails from Scottish Life, the asset manager it acquired last year, where she was employed as investment marketing manager to advise and assist the sales team in marketing the company’s investment products.
At RLAM she will report to sales and marketing director Howard Daldorph and will be involved in the sale of investment products, with an accent on pooled funds.
Commenting on the appointment Daldorph said: “We are pleased to have Lorna on board as she is an experienced sales person and this will help with the development and growth of the kind of team we are looking for.”
Hutchison's appointment follows RLAM's hire of nine managers from Scottish Life earlier this year.
