Snowball appointed as Sumus director

Falcon parent Sumus has announced the appointment of Andrew Snowball as non-executive director.
Snowball will remain as commercial director of Financial Services Advice & Support Limited, which was acquired by Sumus in September for £2m.
Snowball says: “Becoming part of the Sumus group was a major strategic step for FSAS and I am delighted to be invited to join the quoted company board.
