IFA firm Lighthouse Group has appointed Richard Last as non-executive director.
The company, also a pension scheme administrator, says Last’s experience in financial management and IT will help it realise its expansion ambitions.
Last, 50, holds a number of other directorships of both public and private firms, including AIM-listed Xpertise Group and Knowledge Technology Solutions.
He is beneficially interested in 290,000 ordinary shares, which represents around 0.35% of the company’s issued share capital.
David Hickey, Lighthouse Group chairman, says: “Richard brings considerable knowledge in a number of key business disciplines, particularly financial management and IT.
“The retail financial services area is consolidating and changing rapidly, and Richard’s wealth of knowledge will contribute significantly to Lighthouse’s strategic thinking and direction, and he is warmly welcomed to the Board.”
