Moneysupermarket Group has announced the appointment of Andy Hancock as chief customer officer.

Hancock has been with Moneysupermarket Group since 2014 and will take on an expanded role leading marketing and customer services, in addition to his existing responsibility for driving the digitisation of mortgages through the group’s joint venture, Podium, and his role as managing director of MoneySavingExpert Publishing.

He will continue to be a member of Moneysupermarket Group’s executive management team.

He will take on the chief customer officer role from 23rd April.

“This is an incredibly exciting time to become chief customer officer, as we enter the second year of our reinvent strategy and start to deliver on our brand promise to make our services more proactive, personalised and painless for our customers,” Hancock said.
