Employee benefits platform WorkLife has appointed Niamh McLaughlin as managing director as part of a management rejig.
McLaughlin (pictured) succeeds Robert Marshall who moves into the newly created role of head of product and proposition.
Most recently managing director of legal services firm ME Group’s litigation funding business, she has also held a number of senior roles at Bibby Financial Services, including head of operations.
Commenting on McLaughlin’s appointment, Anthony Morrow, founder of parent company OpenMoney, said: “This is a pivotal time for WorkLife as we keep driving forward our mission of making financial advice and employee benefits accessible and affordable to every UK business.
“Bringing someone of Niamh’s experience and calibre is therefore a fantastic result for us – her input will be invaluable as we further expand our offering and work towards becoming a recognised and deserving leader in the SME benefits market.”
McLaughlin added: “The pandemic has put huge pressure on UK SMEs and their employees, making this a really a crucial time for the employee benefits market.
“WorkLife has been doing some fantastic work since coming onto the scene last year, and I see huge potential to keep driving this forward to build something truly special for smaller businesses, enabling them to return their workers’ hard work and loyalty with benefits and support that will make a genuine difference to their lives.”
