AJ Bell appoints Fiona Clutterbuck as non-exec chair
AJ Bell said on Friday that it has appointed Fiona Clutterbuck as non-executive chair with effect from 1 May.
"The board believes that Fiona is the ideal person to lead the board and help AJ Bell capitalise on the growth opportunities that exist in the investment platform market," it said.
Clutterbuck will also join the Nomination Committee, as chair, the Risk and Compliance Committee and Remuneration Committee, and take on the role of the designated non-executive director for engagement with the workforce.
She was previously a non-executive director of Hargreaves Lansdown, was the chair of Paragon Banking Group until September 2022 and is currently a non-executive director of Sampo and Co-operative Bank.
Clutterbuck is also the senior independent director of M&G but plans to step down from that role at the conclusion of the AGM on 24 May.
Chief executive Michael Summersgill said: "I am delighted that Fiona will be joining the board. Fiona has a wealth of experience in our sector and will be able to support and challenge the executive team whilst leading the board as we continue to grow the business."
