Rennison joins Thinc to set up multi-ties

Multi-distribution platform Thinc has appointed former Bradford & Bingley Group financial services director Roderic Rennison as group operations and strategic relationships director.

He will initially be working on multi-tie negotiations with providers and will be overseeing the talks on a possible merger with national IFA firm Destini which would create Thinc Destini.

He starts on December 1 and is expected to be responsible for some operational aspects that are still to be decided. Rennison, who has been in financial services for 31 years, will be part of the senior management team.

He says: “I see the next 12 months as the most significant in the last 15 years in the history of this industry. Those who survive are likely to succeed in the next 10 years. Depolarisation is just around the corner.”

Thinc group chief executive Gregg Taylor says: “He brings with him a huge amount of industry knowledge and experience and a particular skill set that a rapidly growing company like ourselves needs from an operational and strategic perspective.”
