"We are delighted Mark has now started his role at Group Chief Financial Officer at Just. He is one of the top talents in the insurance market, bringing with him extensive commercial and financial insight gained from across the sector. We are delivering mid teen profit growth and our business has never been stronger. Mark has a growth mindset and is ideally placed to help us continue to deliver our profit pledge.  I am looking forward to working closely with him.


On behalf of the Board, I want to thank Andy Parsons for his central role in building our financial strength which has allowed us to return to growth in recent years and face into the future with confidence.  He has also delivered a major programme of finance transformation including the implementation of IFRS 17."


Mark Godson commented:

"I'm pleased to have joined the Board and the Executive team, to support the Group's growth strategy, creating value for our shareholders and delivering great outcomes for our customers.  Over recent years I have been impressed with the way Just, the UK's retirement specialist, has successfully transformed its business model.  I'm excited about the future prospects of the business and working alongside colleagues to fulfil our purpose to help people achieve a better later life."

"I'm very pleased that the business is in such great shape at the point that I leave to start my retirement. Just is a purpose led business with an absolute focus on its customers and I've really enjoyed my time here. It's great to be handing over the baton to a talented new CFO in Mark."


The announcement is made in accordance with Rule 9.6.11 of the Listing Rules.
