Former Ascentric sales and marketing director Richard Goodall is joining SEI as head of sales and marketing, Money Marketing understands.
Yesterday, Ascentric said Goodall had resigned from the Royal London-owned wrap. He joined Ascentric in February 2009 and was part of the management team that saw the platform reach profitability in June this year.
He was previously sales and marketing director at 1st The Exchange from 2005 to 2009. Before that he was Zurich Advice Network regional director and sales director at Axa Sun Life. Goodall also spent 10 years at IFA firm Noble Lowndes.
SEI, which powers platforms including Towry, Paradigm’s corporate offering and Bestinvest, was unavailable for comment.
Ascentric managing director Hugo Thorman says: “Richard has decided to leave Ascentric and pursue interests elsewhere. I would like to thank him for the important role he played in growing our platform business and I wish him well for the future.”
