The new role would involve responsibility for overseeing the group’s strategy and execution as well as management of the actuarial and product management functions.
ClearView managing director, Simon Swanson, said: “Orla brings with her significant experience in financial and non-financial risk management, compliance and governance.
“She has worked in senior risk and compliance roles across many financial institutions for over 20 years and will continue developing our risk and compliance culture, as we focus on assisting advisers and customers to navigate all the changes occurring in both the economy and financial services.”
