IFA consolidator Perspective has set up a new operational board and promoted group mergers and acquisitions manager David Hesketh to group mergers and acquisitions director and group regulatory manager Julie Hepworth to group regulatory director.
Both will join the firm’s operational board which includes managing director Damian Keeling, financial director Phil Carr, operations director Peter Craddock and group practice director Ian Wilkinson.
Wilkinson’s role has been expanded and he will now chair the board of all Perspective’s regional offices in the north, while Craddock will chair all regional offices in the south.
Perspective says the operational board will be responsible for the strategic planning of the firm. Perspective’s main board remains unchanged.
Craddock says: “The promotions reflect David and Julie’s significant contribution to the group since they joined in 2008 and 2010 respectively, and acknowledge their strategic importance to the continued growth of Perspective. Across Perspective it is always our preference to promote from within where possible in order that we retain a consistency of approach.”
