Hobbs to become CEO of New Leaf Distribution
Daniel Hobbs is set to take on the role of CEO of financial advisory network New Leaf Distribution, once it has been approved by the regulator.

Hobbs is currently the managing director of New Leaf Distribution and, at 35 years old, the firm claims he could be the youngest network leader in financial services. 

He has worked at the network for 12 years, starting as director of compliance in 2012, a position he held for five years. 

Once he assumes the role of CEO, Hobbs will be succeeded by Sam Wallis, who is currently investment director. 

Mark Hobbs, current CEO of New Leaf Distribution and father of Daniel, will transition to the position of chair when Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) approval is granted. As chair, he will continue to provide strategic direction and support to the leadership team. 

New Leaf Distribution advises on mortgages, equity release, protection and financial planning. 

Daniel Hobbs (pictured) said: “I’m incredibly honoured to be taking on the role of CEO at New Leaf Distribution. I’ve been fortunate to learn from Mark’s guidance over the years, and I’m excited to leverage that experience to build upon our success and explore new opportunities, particularly in the advice gap space.

“As always, we remain committed to being known as the network that knows your name and that places a cap on the number of advisers it works with to ensure quality and service standards are unrivalled. Advisers choosing to partner with New Leaf will be valued and respected.” 

Mark Hobbs added: “We’re excited to launch some incredible initiatives in the coming months, all focused on the future and addressing the advice gap. We’ll continue to build the best offering for IFAs and brokers in the UK, with a focus on quality over quantity. 

“This is a new chapter for New Leaf Distribution and we are confident that Daniel and Sam will lead us to even greater success.”
