Wesleyan Assurance Society, the financial services specialist for doctors, dentists, lawyers and teachers has appointed Steve Robson as Head of IT.
Steve has worked in IT for nearly 20 years and has a wealth of operational and strategic experience at board level. He has worked in complex global markets and multiple business sectors with more than eight years in financial services. Steve was previously Head of IT at Lloyds Banking Group and Chief Information Officer at GMAC.
Martin Howard, Wesleyan's Operations Director, welcomed the appointment saying, "We're delighted to have someone of Steve's calibre join us at Wesleyan. His proven ability to deliver successful business, organisational and technology changes within the financial services industry makes him a perfect candidate to strengthen our technology offering, both internally and externally to our professional customer groups."
Steve Robson added, "I'm really pleased to have joined a company which places so much importance on developing technology. It came as no surprise to me that Wesleyan won an award for Best Use of IT in Insurance for the customer point-of-sale system, which uses state of the art technology to meet the needs of our professional customers. Wesleyan genuinely puts the customer at the heart of everything in order to deliver a high-quality, tailored service. I hope to build on achievements like this to help Wesleyan fulfil its aim to become the provider of choice in its chosen markets."
