- Seniors services provider Saga said it had appointed Cheryl Agius as head of its insurance business and Gilles Normand as chief operating officer.

Agius was most recently chief executive of Legal & General's general insurance business.

Normand was most recently chief executive of Swinton, the UK retail insurance arm of France's Covea.

'These are two important appointments as we continue the transformation of Saga, and both Cheryl and Gilles will help drive the new strategy we announced in April,' chief executive Lance Batchelor said.

'They both have strong and very relevant experience of strategic delivery and will build on the momentum we have already created.'
