Carr, who has worked for the adviser firm for eight years, is set to join PruProtect as its director of protection development in late September.
His remit will include product development, strategy and sales and marketing.
Carr says: “I will always be extremely grateful to Baigrie and the team at LifeSearch for giving me the opportunity to help change the protection industry. I am incredibly proud of our achievements and have nothing but good words to say about LifeSearch, its people and my time there.
“However, I feel the time is right to experience a new and exciting challenge.”
