TAL has appointed Fiona Macgregor as its new group CEO and managing director from 1 October 2024.

She will continue in her current role as chief executive – individual life until then as leadership transition with Brett Clark continues.

This follows the promotion of TAL’s current Group CEO and managing director Brett Clark to the role of CEO and managing director of Asia-Pacific for Dai-ichi Life Group, TAL’s parent company.
