“I know Martin is excited by the prospect of leading Scottish Widow Bank forward. I know he will make the best of the opportunities for our customers, for brokers and for the brand.”
Fleming will be responsible for the day-to-day running of Scottish Widows Bank and, along with the rest of the Scottish Widows Bank board, its future strategy.
Fleming added: “Scottish Widows Bank is a great brand, with a committed team and a reputation for excellent products and service. I’m looking forward to the challenge, and leading it into the next stage of growth.”
