Artemis Investment Management has appointed former Allfunds Bank head of UK Alan Gadd as head of product and distribution development.

Artemis says Gadd will be responsible for identifying any required structural changes at the firm as well as reviewing overseas opportunities. He will report into Artemis head of asset gathering Dick Turpin.

Gadd left Allfunds in April 2012  to take up the role of independent consultant having been with the bank since May 2009.

Turpin says: “We are delighted that Alan has joined us. Artemis will benefit from his breadth of experience, strategic thinking and insight.”
