TAL General Manager, Group Insurance, Jenny Oliver, was named as winner of the 2018 Industry Leader Award, which honours an individual who has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to innovative thinking to transform the life insurance industry and meet the challenges of the next generation.
TAL Head of Investments, Retirement and New Propositions, Ashton Jones, also won the Young Achiever Award, which recognises the achievements of the future leaders in the life insurance industry.
TAL Group CEO and Managing Director, Brett Clark, said, “We are extremely proud of both Jenny and Ashton, whose talent, dedication and achievements have seen them both make substantial contributions to TAL and to our industry.
