Neptune Investment Management has appointed former Ignis Asset Management head of strategic alliances Nick Pogmore as intermediary sales manager for the South-east.
Pogmore was one of 20 people made redundant by Ignis in March after the firm reassessed its distribution roles. He joined Ignis in November 2009 and was responsible for developing relationships with UK fund platforms, life offices, national IFAs and advisory networks.
He previously worked for M&G as partnerships development director from 2003 to 2008.
Neptune has also boosted its sales team with the appointment of M&G partnerships development director Andy Larkin as head of strategic partners.
Last month, Neptune head of strategic partnerships John Lester, head of UK strategic partners Dennis Pellerito and junior sales support member Andrew Nickson left the firm.
Neptune has also promoted head of intermediary sales Adam Hughes to the new role of head of UK wholesale.
Sales director Patrick Berton says: “With the team in place, I am confident we will achieve the necessary synergies to provide a better service for our clients in all regions across the UK.”
