Asteron Life Appoints New Distribution Leader


Asteron Life has appointed Graham Hill as its new Executive Manager Life Distribution, effective 9 July 2018.

Hill’s career has spanned both the life insurance and banking sectors, including seven years spent at Sovereign as Head of Adviser Distribution.

A further 16 years were spent at ASB where Hill held a number of roles including Head of Group Sales and Service.

Hill’s new responsibilities will include delivering a seamless customer experience across all distribution channels and driving adviser engagement.

Executive General Manger of Intermediated Distribution and Corporate Partners, Cris Knell, said: “Graham is a collaborative leader who will build strong and effective business relationships based on integrity and a reputation for delivering results.”

Hill’s appointment follows the sudden and tragic passing of Mark Frecklington in January this year.

“Mark’s passing had a profound impact on our people, the adviser community and the wider public,” said Knell.

“My sincere thanks go out to Trevor Longbottom who stepped into Mark’s role during this very difficult and challenging time, to ensure that the Asteron Life team maintained momentum in delivering on our promise,” he said.
