PTFS director David Carrington’s retirement plans prompt management shake-up
David Carrington, sales and marketing director for Personal Touch Financial Services (PTFS), has confirmed plans to retire in the first quarter of this year.

Carrington (pictured), winner of Press Spokesperson of the Year at the 2014 British Mortgage Awards, joined PTFS in 2012. His departure has prompted a reshuffle of the network’s senior management team, with IT becoming a major focus in the newly-created role of commercial director which will be filled by Dave Edwards (pictured right).

Edwards to take over Carrington's responsibilities

Leaving the role of member services director, Edwards will take over Carrington’s duties as well as overseeing product propositions, marketing, the hub, and technology.

In an announcement to its network members, chief executive Jane Cross said the expansion of the role reinforced PTFS’s strategy of putting technology at the heart of all its businesses.

Simon Breakspear will fill the role of director of member services.

Mortgage proposition manager Vikki Jeffries’ job role has also been expanded. Jeffries has been appointed as head of propositions.

Edwards said she had demonstrated how the business could maximise opportunities and respond to challenges within the market. This approach, he added, would be instrumental in negotiating improved provider terms for network members.

These changes follow the appointment of Paul Underwood as risk and compliance director at the end of 2016.
