LV= appoints Julia Tyson as HR Director

Press release: 17/10/2013

Insurance, investment and retirement group LV= has appointed Julia Tyson as group HR Director.

Julia has over 25 years HR experience, and is joining LV= from construction group Wates, where she was group HR Director. In her role at Wates, Julia was responsible for the overall HR and people strategy for the 2,500 FTE strong company. Prior to this Julia was Corporate HR Director for Centrica for four years and has also worked at Royal Bank of Scotland and Barclays Capital in senior HR roles during her career.

In her role as group HR director, Julia will be responsible for the overall people strategy for LV='s 5,700 employees and she will head up a team of over 100 people looking after HR and communications. Julia will join the executive committee at LV= and will report into group CEO, Mike Rogers.

We are delighted to welcome Julia to LV=. We've seen huge growth in both our business and employee numbers over the last five years and I look forward to working with Julia as we enter the next phase of business success.

Mike Rogers, CEO commenting on the appointment

I am looking forward to working with Mike and the leadership team to continue the LV= success story. One of the things that particularly attracted me to LV= is the strong people focused culture and its ethical approach to financial services that the business has put in place over the last few years.

Julia Tyson added


LV= employs over 5,700 people and serves over five million customers with a range of financial products. We are the UK's largest friendly society and a leading financial mutual.

When we started in 1843 our goal was to give financial security to more than just a privileged few and for many decades we were most commonly associated with providing a method of saving to people of modest means. Today we follow a similar purpose, helping people to protect and provide for the things they love, although on a much larger scale and through a wide range of financial services including insurance, investment and retirement products.

We offer our services direct to consumers, as well as through IFAs and brokers, and through strategic partnerships with organisations such as ASDA, Nationwide Building Society and a range of trade unions.
