Sales director for adviser sales Andy Davies says: “The needs of financial advisers are changing and Robin will head up a team of experienced business consultants who are answering the needs of those advisers who require telephone or online support to match their chosen business model. Robin’s wealth of experience makes him the ideal person to lead our growing Adviser Direct service.”
