Lighthouse Advisory Services appoints MD

Lighthouse Advisory Services has appointed group project director Danyel Jordan as managing director.

Jordan will take over the role on 1 February and replaces Stephen Gazard who left the firm to join Sesame as distribution director.

Lighthouse Group chief executive Malcolm Streatfield says: “Danyel has proven ability, skill and has a passion for good service allied to quality standards of delivery. 

“He will be a real asset to the senior team as we support our membership through the years ahead.”

Barretts Financial Solutions senior partner Kim Barrett says: “I think internal promotions are a good idea because the person moving up knows the business better than any outsider. He has clearly been promoted on the basis of his performance in his previous, more junior role.”

Money Marketing first revealed Gazard was joining Sesame in November following a reshuffle of the Sesame executive team.
