Hymans Robertson has appointed Simon Mortimer as chief digital officer (CDO) - a new role created in a bid to enhance its digital impact.
Mortimer joins the firm from the Body Shop where he held the vice president of digital role covering the USA and Canada.
Prior to this he was chief digital officer at Saga and was also e-commerce strategy manager at Bupa and global director of digital at RSA.
He previously worked at Australian telecommunications firm Telstra for more than nine years in multiple senior roles including as project manager.
Managing partner Shireen Anisuddin said: "We've created this new role as a commitment to putting digital capabilities at the heart of what we do for our clients. In the role, Simon will work alongside our head of markets, the management board and the digital community to harness the full potential of our data, tools, systems and technology capabilities.
"We aim to transform the digital impact that we have on the markets in which we operate and this appointment will enable us to do this. We want to offer our clients efficient digital solutions that could previously have been seen as impossible. Giving greater emphasis to this area by appointing Simon as CDO will also allow us to meet the increasing demand we're seeing for digital offers in our markets."
