Key Group announces new group technology director

Key Group has promoted Jack Neary, who joined the company as a web developer eight years ago, to the position of group technology director.

The Preston-based specialist provider of financial solutions to the over-55s now employs a workforce of more than 600. During Jack's time with the business, he has overseen the launch and migration of numerous digital platforms and projects across the group, as well as the adoption of cloud first technologies and techniques. This has helped him to build a deep understanding of the later life customer and how to communicate with this demographic online.

In his new role, he will focus on technical governance and driving digital transformation across the group to meet customer’s changing expectations. He will also continue to play an important role in the development of the group’s websites, and will report to Dave Johnson, chief digital officer at Key Group.

Jack Neary said: “Key Group has invested in me over the past eight years, helping me to develop the necessary skills and experience for the new challenge of being group technology director. I’m excited to help lead digital change within the business, and look forward to improving the experience for both our customers and colleagues alike in my new role - with the support and guidance of Dave Johnson.”
