Adviser consolidator Attivo has hired Jon Dixon as employee benefits director.
Dixon joins from Chase de Vere, where he was corporate sales manager until December.
Dixon will oversee the firm’s plans to offer automatic enrolment advice to small and medium sized businesses.
Attivo Group chief executive Stephen Harper says: “Attivo Group’s employee benefits proposition, under Jon’s leadership, aims to be recognised as the partner of choice for SME businesses and others that value the difference innovation and quality can make. We are delighted to have such an experienced and highly respected industry figure join our growing team.”
Dixon adds: “Unlike much of the current pensions advisory community, Attivo Group is not hindered by obsolete processes, systems and behaviours and as such seeks better, leaner ways to deliver outcomes to staff from the boardroom or on the shop floor.
“We are keen to increase our footprint in both the business and advisory communities and have a rolling schedule of business briefings planned to help decision makers understand their duties and make choices that will increase their competitive advantage.”
The firm is targeting six adviser acquisitions this year.
Loch Fyne Financial director Douglas McIntyre says: “The priority for Attivo should be to ensure clarity, consistency and robustness in its processes because auto-enrolment is all about scale.”
