Change at the helm for Scottish Financial Enterprise after five years
Before joining SFE, Jones held a number of senior posts in some of the UK’s largest financial services organisations, including Aviva, Experian, RBS Group and Standard Life. He will retire from SFE at the end of this year.
The organisation pointed to a number of developments overseen by Jones during his tenture, including growing membership by 25 per cent and “constructively engaging” with the UK and Scottish governments on behalf of members as they face the uncertainty of Brexit and now the coronavirus crisis.
Chairman Philip Grant said: “Graeme’s leadership has transformed SFE and he will be sorely missed by me, the board and his team when he retires in December 2020.
“Graeme has built the firmest of foundations from which we can continue to develop and build the capability and impact of SFE in representing the interests of our members and developing the value of financial services for Scotland.”
Jones added: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at SFE and I’m proud to be leaving it with strong and secure foundations as it enters a new chapter. I would like to thank the SFE board for their enduring support over the past five years and my team for their hard work, commitment and guidance.”
The CEO search process is being managed by Carlyle.
