Kayes joins SimplyBiz to head advisory board

Former Tenet chairman Barry Kayes has joined SimplyBiz in a move that will see him set up an advisory board at the firm.

The new board will monitor and help shape the strategic objectives of the business in a bid to enhance future growth, development and success.

Kayes is a member of the Chartered Insurance Institute’s faculty of life and pensions advisory board, Aifa executive council and the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries. He is heading Aifa’s retail distribution review with the FSA.

He says: “I believe the SimplyBiz formula is a positive way for the intermediary marketplace. I look forward to helping drive SimplyBiz forward for the benefit of member firms and the IFA sector as a whole.”

SimplyBiz chief executive Ken Davy says: “In forming an advisory board, we are seeking to expand our already successful business by thinking outside the box. Barry has a breadth of experience, making him an ideal champion for our advisory board.”
