Personal Touch suspends chairman Wilson

Personal Touch Financial Services chairman Martin Wilson has been suspended pending an internal investigation.

Money Marketing understands that Wilson has been suspended for around two weeks while the network looks into the matter. How- ever, nobody at PTFS would comment on the details. It remains unclear what the matter relates to.

Personal Touch sales director Dev Malle says: “It is an internal matter and I cannot comment.”

Since news of Wilson’s suspension, many industry commentators have posted messages of support on the Money Marketing website.
The EMBA Group sales director Mike Fitzgerald says: “I have known Martin Wilson for quite a few years and I know that he is a man of integrity and honesty. I hope that this problem will soon pass as Martin is well liked by both his staff and brokers.”

First Action Finance head of communications Jonathan Cornell echoes Fitzgerald’s comments.

He says: “Martin is a man of utmost integrity, honesty and professionalism. I am sure that this is either a big misunderstanding or someone trying to score points. I am confident that in a short period this will all be cleared up and Martin will continue to build PTFS further.”
