Towergate Financial has appointed Ian Darby as its new chief executive.

Darby spent 16 years of his career at John Charcol, working his way up to the position of chairman between 1984 and 2000.

His roles at the company included group distribution director, in which he supervised and oversaw more than 800 Independent Financial Advisors (IFAs).

He then moved to Bradford and Bingley (B& B), taking a number of executive roles, before returning as chairman of John Charcol when B& B acquired the company in 2004.

Towergate Financial chairman Patrick Snowball said Darby’s extensive IFA, regulatory and marketing experience will be of ‘great value’ to the company.

Darby said he is ‘looking forward’ to taking over at Towergate, and that he wants to bring the company to the ‘forefront’ of the financial industry.

Darby, who also works as a non-executive director of Sesame and chairman of Home Funding, will take to the helm at Towergate today.
