David Child has been appointed as Non-Executive Director of Intelliflo with immediate effect.
He started his career at The Bank of England, where he spent 10 years in the Banking Division before moving to DBS Management Plc (latterly Misys Financial Services) where he spent 12 years and had Board responsibility for compliance and technology.
In 2003 David joined The Exchange as Managing Director at a crucial time in its development, successfully taking the company through its acquisition by Vertex, where he was appointed to the main Board which included responsibility for the Life and Pensions Outsourcing Division, and the acquisition by Lloyds Development Capital (LDC).
He led the business through the acquisitions of 1st Software and more recently N4 and the company’s significant growth during this 7 year period was substantially a result of his vision, commitment and execution skills.
David commented on the appointment: “I am genuinely excited to be joining Intelliflo at such an interesting and dynamic period of the company’s development. The business has performed exceptionally well during the pre and post RDR period which is a testament to the company’s talented management and staff, strong business model and excellent customer proposition.
I look forward to working with this proven team lead by Nick Eatock and the outstanding adviser centric technology, innovations and heritage of Intelliflo. These factors, together with the recent investment by HgCapital, position the business for growth in the UK by taking advantage of the material changes and technology migrations in the financial services distribution sector.”
Nick Eatock of Intelliflo said: “We are delighted to announce David Child’s appointment as a Non – Executive Director. David brings a wealth of particularly relevant experience and expertise to the business having spent much of his career in senior management positions across technology and financial services distribution. We are looking forward to David joining the Board as we continue to develop our UK-focused adviser technology propositions.”
