The latest senior moves in wealth management from across the UK and Europe.
Charles Stanley has named former Brown Shipley chief Ian Sackfield as managing director of investment management services to run the firm's network of branches. In the newly-created post, Sackfield will lead 20 branch offices and will be in charge of business development and productivity. Based in Manchester, he will also join the firm’s executive committee and report to investment management head Peter Kelk.
Sackfield has 20 years of board experience in financial services and spent nine as CEO of Brown Shipley. After stepping down, he remained for a while in a client-facing role as client director.
On the back of financial results “performing well” for the division, Sackfield brings the focus to guide it through a fast-changing landscape, Kelk said. “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.”
