Mark Bogard has resigned as managing director of Chase de Vere Financial Solutions.
Bogard joined the group after its acquisition of financial website Moneyextra and oversaw the merger of IFAs MX Financial Solutions and Chase de Vere Investments in March last year.
Parent company Bank of Ireland pushed through the merger in May. The shake-up saw MX Financial bear the brunt of 342 job losses.
Bogard is being replaced by St James's Place Group strategy adviser Evelyn Bourke. It is not known yet whether he intends to remain in the financial services sector.
The group says it intends to focus on growing and strengthening its advisory businesses. Bourke will concentrate on multi-channel distribution and opportunities for the business from pension simplification.
Chase de Vere Financial Solutions spokeswoman Anna Bowes says: “The strategy is to build on the private client and employee benefit businesses.”
