Openwork has appointed Mary-Anne McIntyre as chief executive officer, subject to FSA approval.
McIntyre, currently the company's chief operating officer, takes on the position with immediate effect and replaces Martin Davis who recently left to head up the Cofunds platform.
In her new role, she will assume responsibility for progressing Openwork's proposition strategy, under which network advisers have the choice of operating a range of models from single-tie to whole of market.
McIntyre has been COO since joining the business in August 2010 and prior to that was at Fidelity International where she was head of customer services & strategic alliances and played an important role in developing the service proposition of FundsNetwork.
Prior to that she worked with Paul Bradshaw to help establish wrap platform Nucleus.
She has also held senior roles in companies including Amvescap, Perpetual and Deloitte.
"Openwork is in the advantageous position of having in place a clearly defined strategy for long-term growth, significant financial support and a gifted executive team," said McIntyre (pictured). "This is an exciting time to assume the role of CEO and I look forward to building on the progress made to date in ensuring our advisers have the best possible support they require to achieve significant success under the incoming regulation."
