Personal Touch Financial Services sales and marketing director Dev Malle has quit the firm.

He joined PTFS in October 2006 from Pink Home Loans where he was sales director, and before that he was senior manager for new business at Nationwide Building Society.

This is the latest in a series of high profile departures from the network, with its former chief executive Doug Crawford leaving in February and in recent week its director of IFA services John Ruddick and head of sales development Andy Walton are understood to have also stepped down.

David Carrington will be taking on a newly expanded role of marketing director. Carrington is a former chief executive of Policy Plus and previously head of sales at Eagle Star.

PTFS chief executive officer Max Wright says: “With David’s strategic vision and expansive market knowledge providing the ideal complement to our new management team, we are now ideally positioned to drive forward with our ambitious future plans. 

“Sadly some people have chosen to say goodbye and I would like to thank Dev for his commitment to Personal Touch over the past six years and we wish him well in his new chosen path.”

    The FSCS will be creaking soon enough, well those who fund it will be.

    This amount of high level resignations should be a concern to the whole network. A man or women with the vision and drive to create and secure business for the network is what is needed and long overdue. The answer is very simple for anyone who cares to ask.!!!!!

  4. There has to be more to this than meets the eye….when high profile / long standing staff resign in bulk.

  5. I’m a member of PTFS and it was absolutely on the right path at the start the 2012, growing membership, building a great senior team and now…how could it all have gone so wrong so quickly?

  6. @Anonymous 4.45pm. Very simple answer to how it goes wrong so quickly. FSA impositions and disasters via the stroke of a pen. FSCS levies making it harder to make profit for all concerned. Better to resign than be sacked. I do feel for all network members.
