The Institute of Financial Planning has awarded Brunel Capital Partners’ Damien Rylett the Tony Sellon “good egg” award for 2013.
Rylett was recognised for contributing the most to the success of the IFP over the last year. It is awarded in memory of Tony Sellon, a founding member and past president of the IFP who died in 2001.
Presenting the award at the IFP’s annual conference in Newport, interim chief executive Steve Gazzard says: “We always get a number of very worthy nominations for this award and it is great to see how many of our members, volunteers, and supporters are valued by members who make the nominations. Damien has helped IFP staff with their own financial questions, and is always willing to provide constructive feedback on IFP initiatives.”
Gini Bolton of Fiscal Engineers and chairman of the IFP East Midlands branch has been named branch chairman of the year.
Bolton says: “I am really honoured to have won this award. The meetings provide excellent support for members to be able to share ideas and to listen to a range of excellent speakers who aren’t simply promoting a product.”
Yesterday the IFP awarded the title of accredited firm of the year to Paradigm Norton Financial Planning. Eldon Financial Planning’s Gemma Siddle won the paraplanner of the year award, while the David Norton building excellence award went to Kevin Deamer of KMD Private Wealth Management.
