Gill Cardy joins software firm

Former Professional Partnerships principal Gill Cardy has joined financial software consultancy Bluecoat software as head  of proposition.

Cardy (pictured) will be responsible for the development of Bluecoat’s practice management system FinPlan.

Cardy set up Professional Partnerships in 1998 to deliver a fee-based financial planning service.

She is also a fellow of the Personal Finance Society and a former member of the FSA’s Smaller Businesses Practitioner Panel.

Bluecoat managing director Mark Skelding says: “We are delighted to have Gill on board. Bluecoat has seen unrivalled business growth across the past couple of years and Gill’s appointment will help offer our broad range of clients some of the brightest and best thinking from one of the leading figures in the sector. I look forward to a very positive future working together.”

Cardy says: “I have been involved in a range of projects during my financial services career, but when Mark approached me I felt it was a unique offer and a challenging opportunity.

“We have a very similar business vision and feel we can achieve even greater commercial successes for the company. I look forward to further adding value to Bluecoat’s proposition to the adviser community.”
