Former Skandia UK Sales Director Dave Chessell is to join wrap provider Novia as regional sales manager for London and the South East.
The move will reunite Chessell with Bill Vasilieff, Novia chief executive and formerly marketing director of Skandia's Selestia platform, and Paul Boston, Novia sales director, who was national sales director at Selestia.
Chessell said he was looking forward to working with his ex colleagues and said Novia was well positioned for growth.
‘The level of change the retail distribution review is bringing means that minimal legacy platforms are well placed to succeed. Smaller, more adaptable platforms such as Novia that have a culture focused on technology will flourish in a world that requires low overheads and propositions that are truly scalable.’
Chessell started his career at GA as an underwriter before moving to a sales consultant role in 1987. He then moved to Scottish Mutual before joining Skandia in 1994.
