Berkeley recruits another Burns Anderson chief for compliance role

IFA network Berkeley Wodehouse has appointed Tim Barton from rival Burns Anderson as its head of compliance.

The move comes as the network gears up to change from partnership to plc status on April 1.

Barton will join Berkeley on March 5 from the Burns Anderson where he has been a senior compliance officer since 1996.

He is the latest senior person to leave Burns Anderson for Berkeley Wodehouse. Malcolm Streatfield resigned as commercial director to become Berkeley&#39s chief executive last April. Philip Whitehead, who was Burns Anderson&#39s chief executive before retiring in August 1998, returned to the industry as Berkeley&#39s first non-executive director last September.

Barton says: “I was with Malcolm at Burns Anderson, got on well with him and like the way he works. Berkeley Wodehouse becoming a plc is a positive step and this is a good career move for me.”

Streatfield says: “As we grow and become a plc, we will have more field compliance officers. We wanted someone with experience of managing field compliance officers and Tim has been doing this very effectively with Burns Anderson.”
