Key Group has appointed Simon Drew (pictured) as chief financial officer in replacement of Rob Scott.
Drew has more than 30 years’ finance experience across the general insurance and pan-European logistics industries.
Most recently, he was chief financial officer at Bravo Group, which provides support and services to a network of owned and independent insurance brokers across the UK.
His career has also included roles at Crawford & Co, AON and P&O as well as other PE-backed businesses.
At Key Group, Drew will have overarching responsibility for the finance and human resources functions, as well as the group data and business intelligence unit.
Drew will focus on helping to position the business for growth as the market returns to more normal trading conditions.
Simon Thompson, group chief executive at Key Group, said: “We are delighted to welcome Simon Drew to the group as our new chief financial officer.
“This is an important time for the later life lending market and Simon’s appointment will help us to capitalise on the significant opportunities that will continue to develop. I look forward to working closely with him.”
Drew added: “The later life lending industry has significant growth potential as well as a real focus on delivering good outcomes for customers, which is a fantastic combination for any sector.
“I look forward to using my experience to help develop the group’s offering and working closely with Simon as well as the rest of the senior team.”
