Ian Wilson of Halifax announces his retirement

Ian Wilson, director of Halifax Intermediaries and Scottish Widows Bank, has announced his retirement.

Wilson joined Halifax as a cashier in Aberdeen over 40 years ago, later becoming director of business development. In 2007 he was appointed Head of Sales for Halifax Intermediaries before taking over responsibility for Scottish Widows Bank in 2019 and becoming responsible for both brands.

In a statement, the bank said Wilson was instrumental in providing product transfers to brokers, launching Scottish Widows Later Life and successfully managing both brands during the pandemic.

He will retire on April 8, 2022.

Lloyds Banking Group Intermediary Managing Director Esther Dijkstra said: “Ian has had a long, loyal and successful career with the business. Much of where we are today is in large part due to the role Ian played.

“On behalf of Lloyds Banking Group and his team, I would like to thank Ian for his leadership and wish him all the best for a well deserved and enjoyable stay.

Wilson says: “I have had a long career with the Group, having joined Halifax when it was still a construction company, and now is the time for something new.

“I will be sadly missed by many colleagues and friends formed over my 40 years who I know share my desire to see the company go from strength to strength. I wish them all the best for the future.
