Platform provider FNZ has named group chief operating officer Guy Warren as UK chief executive following the surprise departure of Paul McMahon last week.
McMahon joined FNZ to head up its UK business in the second half of last year after quitting as Aegon group marketing director in May.
Last week Money Marketing revealed McMahon had left FNZ after less than a year in the role. FNZ says he will be replaced by Warren with immediate effect.
An FNZ spokesman says: “FNZ confirms that Paul McMahon has decided to leave FNZ and his role as UK chief executive.
“Guy Warren, group chief operating officer, has taken on the responsibility for the FNZ UK business with immediate effect.
“We wish to thank Paul for his very positive contribution to FNZ in his time with FNZ and previously as a customer over a number of years. We look forward to continuing to work with him in some capacity in the future.”
