Technology firm director Everill is PFS president

Time4Advice director Jon Everill has taken over as new president of the Personal Finance Society from Eddie Grant.

Everill was announced as president at the PFS annual general meeting in London last week. Before joining back-office technology firm Time4 Advice, Everill was a director at Bluefin. He was previously managing director of IFA firm Destini.

In July 2005, Destini merged with Simon Chamberlain’s Thinc to become Thinc Group, which was sold to Axa in 2006 and rebranded as Bluefin.

Everill says: “It is an honour to be elected president of the PFS. I would like particularly to pay tribute to all that Eddie Grant has achieved as president and I intend to continue this good work and maintain the positive momentum the organisation currently enjoys to ensure another successful year for the society.”

Syndaxi Chartered Financial Planning managing director Robert Reid says: “I think it will be a challenging year for Jon as he is trying to establish his new business, in addition to fulfilling his role as president. There are going to be some important decisions made over the next 12 months and the PFS needs to ensure it has a strong hand in those decisions.”

KohnCougar managing director Roddy Kohn says: “Jon is obviously very driven and determined and I am sure in this role he will be able to fulfil his own ambitions as well as those of the PFS.”

Yellowtail Financial Planning managing director Dennis Hall says: “You have to question if it is a good move to appoint someone who is no longer a practising IFA to this position. It begs the question as to who the body is representing.”
