Former Whitechurch managing director Ian McIver steps down

Former Whitechurch Network managing director Ian McIver has left the firm.

McIver became group sales director at On-Line Partnership Group following its acquisition of Whitechurch in July 2012.

McIver’s LinkedIn profile shows he left the business last month.

On his profile, he says: “In January I felt it was time to move on from On-Line Partnership Group as my work was done. I am now looking for an appropriate opportunity/challenge.”

A spokeswoman for On-Line Partnership Group confirmed McIver’s departure but declined to comment. 

McIver was unavailable for comment.

On-Line Partnership Group was acquired by asset manager Russell Investments in November. Russell plans to offer a restricted advice proposition through the network based around Russell’s multi-asset portfolios.  

McIver was kept on when On-Line Partnership Group originally acquired Whitechurch, and joined the On-Line Partnership Group board. Chairman Kean Seager, compliance director Gaynor Newman and finance director Robert Dyte left Whitechurch following the deal.

Murphy Wealth partner Adrian Murphy says: “Networks have not had a great track record over the last few years so change may not be an entirely bad thing.”
