David Ingram has been appointed as the managing director of SIFA, joining the business next Monday (18 January).
He has worked in financial services for over twenty years, founding adviser compliance support provider Threesixty Services and later becoming the Personal Finance Society’s president.
More recently, he held the position of managing partner at Aim Two Three, a consultancy-based support provider created to work with both product providers and advisory firms.
Neil Stevens, joint managing director of the SimplyBiz Group - of which SIFA is a part, said the compliance and business support society has become recognised as the home of multi-disciplinary adviser partnerships with legal counterparts.
Mr Ingram said he was excited to be part of the team, which will lead SIFA through the next stage of its development.
“I have spent many years working to increase professionalism in the advice sector and the opportunity to work within a company that has been at the forefront of supporting truly professional practices is too good to miss.”
Mr Ingram’s appointment is the latest of several new appointments in the past month, with Viv Williams joining as legal services director, to head up an expanded legal services offering, and Gemma Garen coming in to build a legal consultancy service, driving Lexcel accreditation and development for law firms working with IFAs.
