Stephen Gazard has been appointed as managing director of Lighthouse Advisory Services (LASER).
The former Falcon Group managing director took up the role at the beginning of the month, following the reconfiguration of Lighthouse Group into three operating companies: Lighthouse Financial Advice, Lighthouse Advisory Services and FSAS and Lighthouse Specialist Services.
He says: "I'm really pleased to have the opportunity to play such a key role within the Group.
"The regulatory changes due in the run up to 2013 mean a great deal of change within the financial services profession and I believe Lighthouse is one of the strongest propositions in the market place and I look forward to improving that further."
LASER includes Lighthouse Group's Network offerings, including those previously branded as Falcon and Xpress, providing services to self-employed advisory firms.
