Royal London role for former 1825 chairman Murray

Steve MurrayThe former chairman of Standard Life’s 1825 advice arm will re-unite with Barry O’Dwyer at Royal London after being appointed to the newly-created role of corporate development director.

Steve Murray joins from Aberdeen Standard Investments, where he was deputy head of private markets. He had previously served as chief executive and then chairman of Standard Life’s restricted national advice business 1825 until October 2018.

Mr Murray will now report to Mr O’Dwyer, who last month left his job as head of UK at Standard Life Aberdeen to become Royal London’s new chief executive.

Royal London executive chairman Kevin Parry said Mr Murray would help the company ‘stay true’ to its long-term objectives.

“Steve has a strong reputation in strategic development,” he said, “This, coupled with his strong influencer and communication skills, makes Steve the ideal candidate to join our company at this exciting time in its growth.”

Mr Murray is expected to join Royal London later this year, following regulatory approval.
