Man appoints Phillips head of British retail

Man Group has appointed Richard Phillips head of British retail sales after completing its acquisition of GLG Partners last month.

Phillips was previously co-head of British retail at GLG and before that at Société Générale Asset Management UK, which GLG acquired in 2009.

Man did not say what Andrew Thatcher, Phillips’s co-head at GLG, and John Bennett, head of British distribution at Man, would be doing for the group following the merger.
