Pru poaches Egg man from Arthur Andersen
Arthur Andersen partner Philip Broadley has been appointed finance director of Prudential after working on a recent business review of its internet banking arm Egg.
Chief operating officer of Andersen’s UK financial services practice, Broadley will make the switch next month.
He currently has responsibility for audit and risk consulting services to the firm’s insurance and banking clients, and will replace outgoing FD Les Cullen who has resigned after only several months in the job.
Jonathan Bloomer, group chief executive of Pru, said: ‘We believe (Broadley) will make a strong contribution as we develop all of our business.’
A Fellow of the Institute of the English ICA, one of Broadley’s claims to fame include being one of the Andersen partners who assisted the Bank of England’s Board of Banking Supervision investigation into the collapse of Barings.
