LEBC hires chief operating officer

National IFA and employee benefits firm LEBC Group has appointed Jeremy MacLeod as chief operating officer.

In the newly created role, MacLeod will oversee sales, marketing, operations and IT. He has been with LEBC since 2000 in a variety of roles, most recently as national sales manager.

LEBC chief executive Jack McVitie says: “As our business continues to grow on a national stage, particularly within financial and retirement planning and automatic enrolment, we felt it was important to have a chief operating officer within our corporate structure. Having been with us for over 14 years, Jeremy understands fully the LEBC culture, ethos and ambitions and is perfect for this newly created position.”

MacLeod says: “These are exciting times of opportunity for LEBC and I am relishing the chance to play my part in the future direction and evolution of the business.”

In February private equity firm BP Marsh increased its stake in the business by 12 per cent to 35 per cent.

It is currently involved in piloting a Budget guidance service, with the results to be fed to the FCA as part of the regulator’s work on shaping Chancellor George Osborne’s at-retirement “guidance guarantee”.
