David Nish, former Scottish Power finance director, has been announced as
Group Finance Director for Standard
Life within the last hour.

role, but Nish had long been touted as the favourite.
He replaces Alison Reed, who stepped down from the Board as of this
morning. Reed had been in place to oversee the life assurer’s flotation.

infrastructure director at the company.
Sir Brian Stewart, chairman of Standard Life, said: ‘David is an excellent
addition to the Board. He brings extensive experience as a finance director with
broad skills from working with major UK-listed companies.’
