The chief executive of EDP Top100 company Adnams has been appointed chairman of SG Wealth Management.
Andy Wood has been tasked with guiding the Norwich-based financial services company to the next stage of its development.
It comes after Dr Wood recently stepped down from his position as chair of the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership.
The company has offices in Norwich and Ipswich and is run by founding directors Neil Shillito and Stephen Girling.
Dr Wood said: “I am delighted to be joining SGWM and to help Stephen and Neil shape the next stage of the company’s development.
“From the outset the company has sought to do things differently in the world of financial services such as rejecting commission-based selling in favour of a transparent fee-based approach. The company has a clearly articulated set of values, puts the customer first and seeks to bring these things to life in real and tangible ways. The rich talent within the organisation and this values-based approach is what attracted me to the company.”
Bosses at automotive group Caterham are locked in crunch talks to determine the fate of its business in Norfolk, the EDP understands.
