PTFS appoints new head of sales development

Personal Touch Financial Services has appointed Andy Walton to the newly created role of head of sales development.

His new role will see him spearhead the network’s regional presence and growth, following the network’s announcement earlier this month that it intends to move from an outsourced regional model to a 10-region, employed model, as revealed earlier this month by Money Marketing.

Walton will head up a team of 10 regional managers, who are currently being recruited by PTFS in order to begin operating its new structure from early 2011.

Walton has 22 years experience in business development and training, most recently as a national account manager at Aegon UK. He also spent 12 years at Legal & General in a variety of sales roles.

PTFS sales and marketing director Dev Malle says: “Andy’s appointment is a landmark step in our regional development plans, and will be fundamental in ensuring a smooth transition to our new model and delivering our future growth strategy.”

The network announced yesterday it had moved chief operations officer John Ruddick to the role of head of IFA and appointed Tenet’s former client development manager, Simon Hewitt, as IFA operations manager.
