PosSol compliance director quits

Positive Solutions risk and compliance director James McCourt is leaving the firm.

McCourt has been with PosSol since September 2010 but is leaving to take up a senior regulatory position with a product provider.

The notice says: “After almost two years, James McCourt is to leave Positive Solutions in the summer. Although from a business perspective I am disappointed that I will not have the opportunity to work with him for longer, James is taking up a very senior position with a product provider.”

Coleman took over as chief executive of PosSol in February when Jim Reeve stepped down.
