UK financial services group PIFC Benefit Consultants plc has added Vanda Cox, Mark Howlett and Georgia Bignell to its main board.
Vanda Cox will become corporate development director, with responsibility for developing PIFC’s new business. Cox has been with PIFC for three years and before that was a director with Swire Blanch Consulting where she spent nine years.
Mark Howlett will become financial planning director, with responsibility for the group’s financial planning business. Howlett has been with PIFC for six years. Prior to joining the company, he worked for major insurance companies, latterly operating his own financial planning business.
Georgia Bignell will become compliance director, with responsibility for the group’s overall compliance functions. Bignell has been with PIFC for three years, having previously spent seven years with National Westminster, initially in sales and subsequently as a compliance manager.
PIFC’s enlarged board will continue to focus on the company’s previously announced intention to separate its two main divisions, benefit consultants and financial planning. This will also involve setting up two corresponding operational boards.
