FD of Standard Life Alison Reed replaces investor relations director ahead of group's high profile float

Alison Reed has appointed a new investor relations director, ahead of
Standard Life’s expected float later this year.

Gordon Aitken, a former equity analyst with JP Morgan and an actuary, is to
take on the role, vacated by Amanda Forsyth in November of last year.

The role is a key position ahead of the expected flotation. Forsyth’s
departure was unexpected, with some suggesting that Reed was looking for someone
with greater plc experience.

Reed also announced the appointment of Paul Watts as group internal audit
director this morning. Watts has joined from Prudential where he was in charge
of the group’s Sarbox global compliance programme.
