Graves to leave Pink after four years

Mark Graves will be leaving Pink network after four years in charge of strategic development.

He joined Pink on a 12-month secondment four years ago with the brief of revamping the sales operation after LSL Property Services bought the network from Skipton Building Society.

This was later extended into a wider role as part of a three-year strategic development plan for the network.

Mr Graves, a director of Pink, said: “I am extremely proud of what we have achieved during the last four years and would like to thank the staff and advisers for the commitment and support they have given me during this time.

“I leave on a high and the fact our advisers have just raised over £8,000 to support two families on the SevenFamilies initiative shows what can be achieved when you build a collective team spirit from a group of individuals.”

Jon Round, LSL’s group financial services director, said there would be a handover period before Mr Graves left the company.

He said: “Now that the business is in such a strong position, Mr Graves has indicated that he wishes to seek out a new opportunity and I wish him well in whatever venture he takes on next.

“In Pink Network, he is leaving a business that has an exciting future; Pink is well placed to deliver further growth, and we will continue to enhance the support to our advisers as we move into the next phase of the development of the business.”

A spokesman for Pink said Mr Graves does not have another role to take on yet.
