Personal Group CEO Deborah Frost said the firm was delighted to welcome Liam to the team and to the board.
“His substantial experience ranges across all the different aspects of our group, including a deep knowledge of the insurance market, and we are sure it will be incredibly valuable in supporting our expansion plans,” she said.
“His appointment represents a bolstering of the skills and capacity available at the most senior level of the business, reflecting our continued focus on preparing for and driving growth.
“Liam is fully committed to our vision of creating a brighter future for the UK workforce, supporting and protecting employees across the country. We are excited to start working together.”
