PosSol chief exec Jim Reeve steps down

Positive Solutions chief executive Jim Reeve is leaving the firm to be replaced by commercial director Peter Coleman.

Reeve (pictured) has left the Aegon-owned firm to pursue alternative opportunities within the financial services sector. He joined PosSol in September 2007.

Coleman joined PosSol in March 2011 and is a former Burns-Anderson director. Aegon says he will work with risk and compliance director James McCourt to complete the firm’s preparation for RDR transition.

Aegon executive chairman of distribution Patrick Gale says: “I would like to thank Jim for his significant contribution to Positive Solutions over the last four and a half years. Peter and James’s knowledge of the business and their track record make them an ideal team to lead the firm to future success.”

Peter Coleman says: “Positive Solutions has the right strategy to be one of the winners post-RDR. I’m delighted to be given the opportunity to lead Positive Solutions at such an important time for the firm and the industry.”
