We would like to announce the appointment of Ian Sackfield as Managing Director, Investment Management Services (Branches).  In this newly created role, he will be based in Manchester and will lead the Group’s network of 20 regional branch offices, with responsibility for continuing to drive business development and productivity, as well as branch oversight.  Ian will join the firm’s Executive Committee and will report directly to Head of Investment Management Services, Peter Kelk.

Ian has over 20 years’ Board level experience in financial services, over nine of which were as Chief Executive Officer of Brown Shipley, during which time profits, funds under management and its loan book all grew substantially under his tenure.  After stepping down as CEO he remained in a client-facing role as Client Director for over 18 months.

Commenting on the appointment, Peter Kelk said:

“Our recent financial results show the division is performing well, and this appointment reflects our continued commitment to our branch network outside of London.  Ian will provide the overarching, dedicated focus needed to guide it through a fast-changing commercial landscape. In his role, both as an ExCo member and head of the branches, he brings the depth of leadership, management and client-facing experienced required.  I am delighted that he has chosen Charles Stanley for the next stage of his career and to welcome him to the team.”

Ian Sackfield adds:

“Charles Stanley has a long track record and a reputation for innovation and delivering high levels of personalised, customer service.  It has a strategy that is clearly delivering and is at an exciting stage of its transformation programme.  I am looking forward to being part of its clear growth trajectory and playing a part by contributing in a significant way.”
