Air appoints Jon Dunckley as Air Academy chairman
Later life services platform Air has hired Jon Dunckley as chairman of its Air Academy, its interactive training programme to educate advisers in the later life lending arena.

In his role as chairman Dunckley will represent the academy and ensure that its modules stay relevant and accurate.

The company added that he was already working to add further modules to the course list for Q2 next year.

Air relaunched its academy earlier this year following a rebrand. It provides eight learning modules to educate advisers in the later life lending space.

The academy is accredited by the London Institute of Banking and Finance and there are plans to grow the scheme further to include more advisers.

Dunckley has over 25 years’ experience in the financial services industry and is founding director of About Consulting, which was launched nearly 17 years ago.

Prior to that he worked at Scottish Widows as a senior financial planning manager and before that worked at Wesleyan as head of technical services and training academy.

Stuart Wilson (pictured), CEO at Air, said: “Since the relaunch of our academy, we’ve seen incredible demand for training from advisers in the later life lending market. It’s excellent to have an expert like Jon joining at such an exciting time to help us provide advisers with the highest quality insight, support and content to enable them to grow professionally.

“With the later life lending industry rapidly evolving, advisers are more focused than ever on building their skillset and Jon will be pivotal to the support provided.”

Dunckley added: “I’m delighted to be joining the Air Academy at this point in its development. I’m incredibly passionate about skills training and have had a particular focus on the later life market and professional development since starting my career.

“It is vital that advisers continue to learn and hone their skills as new regulations, approaches and products enter the market, and I’m excited to be part of their journey.”
