Industry trade body Tisa has named former Fidelity FundsNetwork boss David Dalton-Brown as director general.
Dalton-Brown, who was director at Barclays Funds until 2013, takes over from Tony Vine-Lott, who stood down from the role in August last year.
He holds a number of non-executive director positions at Barclays, having previously worked for KPMG, Norwich Union and Prudential.
Dalton-Brown says: “Tisa has an important role to play in delivering effective policies, products and services to savers in the UK as it has a distinct perspective to both trade associations and consumer groups.
“Our membership, drawn from right across financial services, provides an ideal platform from which to tackle the important challenges that the industry and its customers face.”
Tisa chairman Tony Solway adds: “David brings a number of important qualities to our association and I look forward to working with him in the future and to making a positive difference to UK savers and investors.”
