HLPartnership has appointed Tom Barnett to the recruitment manager team.
Barnett joins HLPartnership from Response Mortgages and will report to managing director Shaun Almond.
Tom Barnett said: “HLPartnership is a network on the march and I have been both impressed by the HLP proposition and the enthusiasm which surrounds the business.
“I hope to bring these qualities into all my dealings with prospective and existing ARs ultimately contributing to the success of all aspects of the business.”
Barnett’s new role will consist of growing the number of AR’s within the network and working closely with existing firms to expand adviser numbers.
Shaun Almond added: “We are delighted to welcome Tom to the team.
“Not only will his experience be of tremendous value to our recruitment strategy, but I know his joining will allow Ian and Peter to focus further on the rising number of enquiries both from prospective ARs and the requests we have from our existing firms to help find quality advisers.”
This appointment comes as the mortgage and protection network revealed a 30% year-on-year increase with new membership enquiry levels.
