Franklin Templeton has reorganised its sales team as part of its push into the UK retail market.
It has appointed Matt Lepine as business development manager, responsible for expanding relationships with nationals, networks and life companies. He was previously at Artemis, where he performed a similar role in the North of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Templeton has also appointed Gavin Freeman as sales development executive, focusing on UK IFAs. He was previously at Jupiter.
Sales & marketing director Jamie Hammond says: “We decided to reorganise our team along channel lines to reflect the evolution of the IFA marketplace, depolarisation and the increasing importance of open architecture and fund supermarkets.”
