Sesame Bankhall Group has appointed F&C REIT Asset Management chief executive Nick Criticos to its board as an independent non-executive director.
Criticos will replace independent non-executive director Mike Chadwick, who is leaving the SBG board at the end of March after six years in the role.
Criticos’ appointment is subject to FSA approval.
SBG executive chairman Ivan Martin says: “We are pleased to welcome Nick to the SBG board. This move reflects the continuing evolution of SBG, with our new wealth management arm and the launch of Optimum Investment Management proving to be very popular with advisers. We look forward to benefiting from Nick’s investment management expertise and strategic input as we develop this further for the benefit of advisers and their clients.
“At the same time, we say goodbye to Mike Chadwick. Mike has worked with the group for six years and during that time we have benefited from his valuable contribution, insight and leadership. We would like to thank Mike for his loyal commitment and wish him well for the future.”
