Equitable Life gets new FD
Equitable Life, the troubled life asssurer embroiled in a bitter court battle with Ernst & Young, has appointed a new finance and investments director.
Nigel Brinn replaces Charles Bellringer, who resigned in November after only six months on the board. Bellringer’s departure sparked a row over his £175,000 pay-off.
Brinn, a 57 year old chartered accountant, has been chief executive of Homeowners Friendly Society for the last five years, before which he was managing director of RAC Financial Services.
He has also held a number of financial positions with TSB, Fidelity Investments, Lazard Brothers, Fairey Group and Allied Dunbar to complete his impressive CV.
