Richard Coulson to take charge of Pink


First Complete business development director Richard Coulson has taken charge of sales and recruitment at Pink Network following Mark Graves’ departure.

He will still be in charge of the same areas for First Complete, while the individual brands remain unchanged and still have their own regional director teams.

Earlier this year Toni Smith’s role was widened to sales operations director across First Complete and Pink, looking after marketing and communications plus lender and provider propositions.

LSL director of mortgage services David Copland continues to be in charge of LSL’s mortgage club TMA.

LSL group financial services director Jon Round says: “Each of our businesses has its own competitive proposition, growth strategy and identity. Some support functions are delivered by a single team that looks after all our FS businesses, other functions are delivered by brand-specific teams that look after firms within either Pink, First Complete or TMA.

“Each business benefits from the overall strength, expertise and buying power of LSL’s vast financial services business. This approach enables each network to retain strong elements of individuality and identity, whilst benefiting from a co-ordinated, joined up management approach and the financial backing of a large plc owner.”

In June, former Pink director Mark Graves, who ran the network, handed in his resignation to explore other opportunities.
