OneFamily has announced the appointment of Alan Waddington as its new Director of Intermediaries and Partnerships.

Alan joined the mutual on 1 February and will be responsible for widening the company’s intermediary distribution and developing its network of partners.

He brings a wealth of knowledge from across the protection and mortgage industry and has a deep insight of distribution channels from a career that has spanned Guardian Financial Services, British Friendly Society and Vitality amongst others.

A keen amateur astronomer, cyclist and sports fan, Alan says it was OneFamily’s ‘people-first’ ethos that attracted him.

“Having the opportunity to work with a mutual was a big appeal; OneFamily puts its members’ interests right at the heart of everything it does.  It’s inspiring to work in an organisation that creates value for members, supports communities and makes a real difference to people’s lives.

“I also like OneFamily’s ambition, they’re thinking big and that’s exciting.  I’m really looking forward to playing my part in their growth at a time when mutuality is more relevant than ever.”

Nici Audhlam-Gardiner, Chief Commercial Officer of OneFamily said:

“OneFamily’s growth over the last two decades has been fuelled by establishing strong and lasting partnerships and it’s that heritage that is our foundation for the future.

“So, we’re delighted to welcome Alan to the team, his vast experience will be invaluable to OneFamily as we expand our partnerships and our intermediary network further. He will play an important part in our plans for growth.”
