Alison Mollard has been promoted to business development team leader, key accounts, taking responsibility for implementing a key national accounts strategy as well as coordinating with each regional BDM to increase the levels of sales and adviser service.
She joined Alliance Trust when the company took over specialist Sipp provider Wolanski and Co, where she worked from 2000 and was the company’s leading Sipp salesperson.
It has also appointed Ian Linden to be its new BDM for Scotland, who will have specific responsibility for generating business and liaising with Scottish-based advisers.
He joins next month, from Fitzallan Limited.
The team has also been boosted by Nicola Fotheringham as senior account manager and Sam Charman, who joins as account manager.
Managing director, distribution Kelly O’Donnell says: “These appointments show we are strengthening our adviser team, building on our recognised expertise in the Sipp market to offer the adviser market a growing range of products and services.
“We have been able to attract professionals with a high calibre of expertise and experience interested in working in our business development team, and we expect to expand this further over the year. By appointing managers who will focus on specific regions, starting with Ian in Scotland, we will also be able to offer our services in areas that we have not been able to focus on in such a sustained manner before.”
