Sanlam Investments UK chief executive Alfio Tagliabue has been appointed as a non-executive director of Nucleus with immediate effect.
Tagliabue has headed up Sanlam Investments UK since 2017 and also covers strategic initiatives within Sanlam UK, having previously joined Sanlam UK in 2016 as chief financial officer.
A note to the stock exchange this morning (26 February) said he had joined the platform's board to replace Jeremy Gibson.
Gibson was one of the company's two board members linked to the relationship agreement with its majority shareholder Sanlam UK. Gibson has quit the company and therefore stood down from Nucleus.
Tagliabue's previous roles include group chief financial officer at Ashcourt Rowan, 12 years as a board-level consultant to the asset and wealth management industry and engagement director at Mars & Co.
He started his career in 1992 with Frost & Sullivan, a sector analysis consultancy, and holds an accounting, economics and business administration degree from Bocconi University.
Nucleus chairman Angus Samuels said: "On behalf of the Board, I am pleased to welcome Alfio to Nucleus. Alfio brings strong financial experience and an extensive knowledge in the asset and wealth management industry. Alfio will be a valuable adviser and contributor to both the Board and the Nucleus business and we all very much look forward to working with him.
"I would also like to wish Jeremy well in his future endeavours and thank him for his valuable contributions to the company. The Board has benefited hugely from his expertise during his time as a non-executive director."
