Phil Billingham quits Threesixty

Threesixty head of business consultancy Phil Billingham is leaving the support services provider in June.

Billingham, who joined Threesixty in June 2009, wants to spend more time on his financial planning business Perceptive Planning.

He will continue to present Threesixty events on a self-employed basis.

Billingham will be replaced by Ernst & Young business development leader for financial services in central, southern and eastern Europe Innes Miller, who will take up the role in July.

Billingham (pictured) says: “Whilst I will be spending the vast majority of my time in the UK, working with a small number of firms at a strategic level, there are interesting opportunities in South Africa and elsewhere right now as well. I am also looking forward to spending more time being closer to real clients, helping to grow a proper financial planning practice.”

Miller says: “The industry is in the midst of a very exciting period of change and I am delighted to be joining with a view to developing new services to assist Threesixty’s client’s grow and develop beyond 2013.”

In July, Threesixty technical director and co-founder David Ingram left the firm to take up a consultative role in the industry.

Threesixty was acquired by Standard Life in March 2010.
