Compliance director Ferris-Caley leaves Personal Touch

Personal Touch Financial Services director of compliance Fiona Ferris-Caley has left the network after a restructure of operations.

Ferris-Caley, who spent seven years with PTFS, decided to leave following the restructure which saw the network’s compliance and risk departments merge.

Former risk director and group solicitor Helen Gasser will head the newly created division. Gasser, a member of the Law Society and officer of the Supreme Court, joined the network in November 2006.

Sales and marketing director Dev Malle says: “We have got some fairly robust plans in how we grow Personal Touch and alongside that we have made some board-level structural changes.”
