Phoenix Group makes executive committee changes

Phoenix Group has made two key appointments to its executive committee, with Bríd Meaney promoted to heritage chief executive and Jackie Noakes joining as chief transformation officer.

Meaney's appointment follows current incumbent and life companies chief executive Andy Moss announcing that he will retire after 18 years at the company.

She joined the group in 2021 and has worked closely with Moss since then. Prior to joining Phoenix, she was a partner for the KPMG Advisory business for more than a decade.

Meanwhile, Noakes will oversee the group’s change projects. She joins from the Bank of Ireland, where she served as group chief operating officer. Prior to this, Noakes held senior roles at both Legal & General and American Express, including chief executive of mature savings at L&G.

The two appointments increase the female ratio on the group’s executive committee to more than 42%. In addition, more than half of the current board is now made up of women.

Phoenix Group chief executive Andy Briggs said: “I am delighted to announce the appointments of Jackie Noakes and Bríd Meaney who will be joining the Phoenix Executive committee - they are exceptional leaders and also make us more diverse.

“I would like to thank Andy Moss for the significant contribution he has made over the past 18 years where he has been instrumental in the growth of Phoenix Group and for building an industry leading Heritage business and wish him well in his retirement.

“The delivery of our change and transformation agenda is critical - Jackie brings extensive experience of shaping and delivering strategic business change, as well as leading and implementing technology enabled business transformation.”

Phoenix Group is the UK’s largest long-term savings and retirement business, with £300bn of assets under administration and around 13 million customers - with brands including Standard Life, SunLife, Phoenix Life and ReAssure.
