Old Mutual marketing head Mike Barrett exits for The Lang Cat

Old Mutual Wealth platform marketing manager Mike Barrett is leaving the provider to join The Lang Cat.

Barrett will join the platforms, pensions and investment consultancy in June after 18 years at Old Mutual.

He will be based in the south of England and will cover London and the home counties, with a particular focus on platforms and regulation.

Barrett says: “The Lang Cat is a company I’ve admired for several years. The depth of insight their output contains puts them in a league of their own, and this is down to the quality of people in the team. I’m really excited about joining.”

Old Mutual Wealth head of proposition marketing Tom Hawkins says: “We thank Mike for his strong contribution over the past 18 years and wish him all the best for his future career with The Lang Cat. His responsibilities as platform marketing manager will be taken on by the existing proposition marketing team.”

  1. @ Tessa: If you are just doing a cut and paste job from the press release, why miss out the Mark Paulson’s quote which was by far the best bit?!

    I quote: “Mark Polson, principal of the lang cat said “Well, this is getting embarrassing. If people who actually know what they’re talking about keep joining, we’ll have to stop mucking around and do some actual work. Despite living in the sunniest place in Britain, Mike has a deep and highly creditable darkness in his character, and will fit in nicely.” “
