Former interim CEO of the Investment Association Guy Sears has been appointed as a non-executive director of Marlborough Fund Managers and fund administration services firm IFSL, both Marlborough Group companies.
Sears, who was interim CEO of the Investment Association from October 2015 to September 2016, is tasked with ensuring investors’ best interests are central to decisions made by the boards.
Wayne Green, joint managing director of Marlborough Fund Managers, says: “Guy shares our commitment to ensuring that investors’ best interests are at the very heart of what we do as a business, so he was a natural choice to join the board.
“With his energy and in-depth knowledge of the funds industry, I have no doubt he will make a valuable contribution as a non-executive director, providing an important independent perspective as we continue to grow.”
Sears adds: “The commitment shared by Marlborough and IFSL to providing their clients with a quality service at a fair price is very much in tune with my own values and I look forward to joining what are already strong boards with extensive fund industry expertise.”
