NFU Mutual’s Nick Turner has become the new President of the Personal Finance Society for 2016-2017.
Turner steps into the shoes vacated by Brendan O’Ciobhain, who has just completed his 12-month rotation as president of the professional body.
Turner, who became a member of the Society’s Board in 2011 and vice president last year, has more than 30 years’ experience working in financial services, having held a number of strategy, sales and marketing-related roles at AXA Wealth. It was in 2013 when he moved to NFU Mutual as sales and agency director. Here he oversees more than 100 financial advisers, 20 paraplanners and more than 600 general insurance agents across the NFU Mutual network.
Personal Finance Society chief executive Keith Richards said: “Nick brings tremendous experience and enthusiasm to the role, and I’m looking forward to working closely with him over the next 12 months, during a time of significant and exciting change for both the advice profession and the Society.
“I would like to thank past presidents Brendan O’Ciobhain and David Ingram, who have provided great leadership and made outstanding contributions while serving as directors over the past six years.”
Turner said: “I am honoured to be taking over from Brendan during a period of significant change and reform to our profession, and as the important role of the Society continues to develop.
Replacing Mr O’Ciobhain and Mr Ingram on the Society’s board are Killik & Co partner Sarah Lord and Sense Network head of learning and development Adam Owen.
