Beaufort Group chief exec Alan Easter quits

Beaufort Group co-founder and chief executive Alan Easter is leaving the business after 18 months in charge, Money Marketing can reveal. 

Having set up Beaufort alongside Simon Goldthorpe in March last year, Money Marketing understands Easter is leaving to set up a new financial services venture.

The firm’s board will continue to be managed by executive chairman Goldthorpe and the Beaufort executive team.

Easter says: “This has been a challenging, exciting and very rewarding business to be part of and I wish Simon and his colleagues good fortune in taking it forwards.”

Golthorpe says: “The whole Beaufort Group has reason to be grateful to Alan for what he has done for the business and I would like to thank him personally for all his effort and commitment on its behalf and the success which he has brought.”

Easter launched The Beaufort Group in March 2012 with a board which included former Aegon head of industry development Peter Williams and former Threesixty technical director David Ingram.

Previously, Easter was a director of Honister Capital, leaving the firm in June 2011 as part of a restructure, and before that was head of distribution at The Money Portal.
