Simply Biz MD joins Apfa board

Simply Biz joint managing director Matt Timmins has joined the Apfa board.

Writing for Money Marketing in December, Timmins called on advisers to get behind Apfa following the closure of GIll Cardy’s IFA Centre. He said: “We don’t help ourselves by creating fragmented alternatives”.

On his appointment to the Apfa board, Timmins says:
 “I have long been a supporter of Apfa and what it represents within our profession. Apfa is the only trade body which serves all advisers, irrelevant of whether they are restricted or independent, and which has an impressive track record of successful lobbying, positioning and opposing on advisers’ behalf.”

Apfa director general Chris Hannant says: 
“We are very pleased to welcome Matt to our board of directors. He boasts an impressive background in financial services and he has been a strong advocate of the adviser industry for some time. We will continue to build a united voice which speaks for the whole industry, and we look forward to working closely with Matt in our efforts to provide a better deal for all advisers.”

Perspective director Peter Craddock left the Apfa board earlier this month when he stepped down from his role at the IFA consolidator. He has now joined the FCA’s Regulatory Decisions Committee.
