With more than 20 years’ experience, predominantly in the financial services sector, Lomax has enjoyed a varied career that has encompassed sales, strategy, and client services.

During her tenure, Lomax developed a senior female leader mentoring programme and led the delivery of a staff banking proposition based on a human-centric design approach. 

Southern Cross Health Insurance CEO Nick Astwick said: “We’re delighted to have Cath join the Southern Cross team. As well as being in the business of health, we’re also in the business of people – be it serving our members or our people.
