Andy Milburn, former IFA market manager at protection provider progress from Royal Liver, has joined national law firm Goldsmith Williams as head of marketing.
Milburn, who spent five years at progress, will be responsible for “developing and implementing a comprehensive marketing strategy for the firm”.
Goldsmith Williams is one of the leading legal firms in the intermediary mortgage market.
“The opportunity to join one of the UK’s most progressive legal firms was simply too good to miss,” Milburn says.
“Goldsmith Williams has a strong brand which is based on the provision of a high quality service, the development of cutting edge legal technology and a detailed understanding of the markets in which it operates.
“My challenge is to help the firm further strengthen and extend its brand into new markets, in what is clearly a very challenging business environment.”
Eddie Goldsmith, senior partner at Goldsmith Williams, adds: “I’m delighted to welcome a big hitting marketeer such as Andy.
“We have some exciting and ambitious plans for the year ahead and Andy will have an important part to play in turning our vision into reality.”
Milburn was instrumental in the marketing success of Royal Liver's e-only protection service - the UK's first paperless provider of life cover and disability products.
He contributed dozens of blogs to IFAonline during his time at progress. His last can be read here.
