Hornbuckle Mitchell risk and compliance director Stella Croot has left the business.
Croot had been with the Sipp operator for eight years. She has left to set up compliance consultancy GRC Smart.
Senior compliance manager Brad Kilbane has taken up the role vacated by Croot. He was previously compliance officer at Berkeley Burke before joining Hornbuckle in February.
Hornbuckle chief executive Phil Smith says: “We wish Stella all of the best with her new venture, which I am sure will be a success. She was a valued member of our senior management team who served the business well for eight years and who understandably was ready for a new challenge at a time of great change for our industry. Her departure has been a very orderly and planned transition which has gone well, leaving in place an excellent team.”
