Modray to join Bestinvest in marketing and PR role

RJ Temple consultant Justin Modray is joining rival IFA Bestinvest, with responsibility for some of the PR and research functions previously carried out by Jason Hollands.

He will join Bestinvest in March following the departure of former deputy managing director Hollands, who joined Isis last week as group communications director.

Modray will be responsible for some PR and research at Bestinvest in addit-ion to his core marketing and business development roles.

After working for Chase de Vere for six years, Modray, 32, joined FundsDirect, which he left after six months to run a mobile cocktail bar which he still owns. After a spell advising expatriates in Switzerland, he returned to the UK last autumn.

Bestinvest chairman and managing director John Spiers says: “Justin will take over some aspects of what Jason was doing but his role will be different.”
