Published: 29 Feb 2016
Momentum is pleased to announce that Craig Cheyne, Group Head of Sales, and Susan Brooks, Group Head of Administration and Investment, have both been appointed to the board of Momentum Malta.
“We very much welcome Susan and Craig to Momentum’s Malta Board,” commented Stewart Davies, Momentum CEO. “We continue to build the scope of Momentum’s international proposition by recognising industry-leading management talent to deliver technical excellence with sustained growth.”
Craig said: “I am thrilled to accept the appointment, especially at such a crucial time for the pensions industry. The Group has met the challenges posed to us by the April 2015 reforms head-on, and we know the tide doesn’t just stop there. We are committed to continuing to provide top-quality pension solutions, while building on our seasoned team to maintain that growth.”
Susan said: “It is an honour to be entrusted with this appointment, and I am thrilled about the opportunities ahead. One of the reasons why I initially joined Momentum was because of its strong reputation for technical and administrative excellence alike, and I intend to keep up that tradition.”
Both appointments have been authorised by the Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA), and are effective immediately.
