AJ Bell has appointed Les Platts as non-executive chairman following Jim Martin’s decision to retire from the role at the end of the year.
Martin, who has been non-exec chairman at the Sipp firm for almost seven years, will step down from the position in December.
Platts says: “Jim has made a major contribution to the development and success of AJ Bell.
“On behalf of Andy Bell, the business and its shareholders, I would like to thank Jim for his service on the board and wish him every success in the future.
“He leaves the business in great shape, with a strong team in place and a sound platform for excellent customer service and continued growth.”
