Hargreaves Lansdown hires new CFO

Hargreaves Lansdown has appointed Chris Hill as its new chief financial officer.

Hill joins from online trading firm IG Group, where he has been CFO for the last four years.

He will take up the role in March 2016, subject to regulatory approval. Deloitte partner Simon Cleveland will continue to act interim CFO during that time.

Hargreaves Lansdown chairman Mike Evans says: “We are delighted to welcome Chris.  He has a highly relevant financial services background and will bring new skills and expertise to the board.”

Hill says: “I have always admired the Hargreaves Lansdown business and I am looking forward to this opportunity to contribute to its continued future success.”
