Henderson partnerships marketing head to depart

Henderson Global Investors 450

Henderson head of partnerships marketing Garry Whitefield is leaving the business, Money Marketing’s sister title Fundweb understands.

Staff from across the business have been put on consultation as the firm plans to cut jobs to increase efficiencies.

Whitefield joined Henderson as part of the New Star acquisition in April 2009, where he was director of partnership marketing for eight years. He was previously head of marketing at Keydata.

A Henderson spokeswoman refused to confirm whether Whitefield is leaving the business.

She says: “Our strict cost discipline allows us to invest in core areas of the business. So, whilst there are likely to be headcount reductions in some parts of our business, we will also continue to invest in other areas where we see future client demand.”

In September, revealed Henderson director of marketing and distribution services Richard Wilson had left the business. He was also from New Star, where he was marketing director for over six years.

Bestinvest managing director of business development and communications Jason Hollands says: “With an operating margin of 36 per cent, Henderson has a credible record on cost discipline but there is always more it can do if necessary.”
