Cofunds head of sales and marketing Alastair Conway is leaving the platform after five years.
Following his departure the firm will split its sales and marketing functions. Head of proposition Verona Smith will become director of marketing and head of investor and wealth distribution, while Andy Coleman will become director of investor and wealth distribution. Both will report to Cofunds chief executive Martin Davis.
Conway joined Cofunds in 2008 as marketing and proposition director. Prior to Cofunds he was head of propositions and commercial development at Sesame.
Conway is leaving at the end of January for another role in the industry but is not thought to be joining a rival.
Davis says: “Alastair has achieved a great deal during his time here. We have benefited from his enthusiasm and drive to evolve Cofunds so that it meets the changing needs of our diverse client base and thrives in the new regulatory environment.”
The Lang Cat principal Mark Polson says: “Alastair has led sales and marketing effort through huge change at Cofunds over the last five years and I am sure he will be missed.”
