Cofunds head of sales departs in restructure

Cofunds head of sales Nick Godfrey has left the platform following a merger of its sales and marketing departments.

Godfrey and national sales manager Paul Rose both left the firm with immediate effect with the group saying the changes are designed to address the changing needs of advisers as they transition their businesses in the run up to the RDR.

The changes will see Stephen Wynne-Jones remain as head of marketing but take on responsibility of the managing and co-ordinating of the delivery of products across the sales and marketing department.
