Simon Thompson, deputy chief executive of Key Retirement Group, whom Scott will report to, said: “Our strategy of building Key into the trusted brand for the over-55s in the retirement segment of financial services is performing well, as demand for independent advice and financial planning support from people in or approaching retirement expands.
