Redington has appointed Adam Jones as chief technology officer, as it looks to harness the power of digital innovation for the benefit of its clients.
Jones started in the newly-created role in November, joining from Altus Consulting where he worked for five years as head of innovation.
Reporting directly to the firm's chief executive officer Mitesh Sheth, Jones is responsible for charting Redington's technology strategy and driving digital innovation to leverage the business' intellectual property.
Sheth said: "Leading edge technology and digital innovation has a central role to play in the future growth and development of the business and our mission to make 100 million people around the world financially secure.
"The creation of this new CTO role is a key part of that strategy and, in Adam, I believe we have found the right person to fill it.
Sheth added Jones is a proven team leader with a track record of driving innovation and developing deployable products, and will be a welcome addition to the Redington team.
Prior to Altus, Jones was a business analyst at FNZ for two years until 2012.
He commented: "I have been a fan of Redington's approach for a long time, so the opportunity to work with Mitesh and the team to shape a new technology enabled future for the business is incredibly exciting."
