From Chief Executive to NED Portfolio – With Brian Duffin OBE

Joining us on the show this week is Brian Duffin OBE, former Chief Executive of Scottish Life. He is currently Chairman of the GEC Pension Scheme,the Aviva With Profits Committee, the Church of Scotland Investments Trust and he is also a NED for NFU Mutual as well as other insurance companies and pension funds.

Brian discusses with Nick the achievement he is most proud of during his time as Chief Executive at Scottish Life and shares how Insurance Business Leaders can transition from Executive to NED roles.

His advice to executives seeking to move into NED roles is “make an honest appraisal of what you are good at and what you are not good at” before deciding which appointments and companies would be a good fit for you.

Brian believes that planning ahead is one key to his success and he invites listeners to reach out to via his linkedin page https://www.linkedin.com/in/brian-duffin-a462293/ for advice or any NED opportunities.
