Brooks Macdonald Retirement Services has appointed Damien Wallen as employee benefits consultant in its Guernsey office.
Wallen (pictured) joins with over 16 years of experience in financial services, most recently as head of financial planning at SPF Private Clients. Prior to this Wallen worked for HSBC Bank, where he joined as a trainee and left as financial planning manager for the wealth management division in Guernsey.
James Hollowell, director of Brooks Macdonald Retirement Services, says: “We are delighted that a knowledgeable and well-respected individual like Damian has agreed to join our retirement services team in Guernsey. Damian will be responsible for our state-of-the-art employee benefits technology platform, which is a new concept to Guernsey, and I know he is very keen to share this with employers across the island through our upcoming employee benefits workshops.”
Wallen says: “I passionately believe that employee benefits offer a true enhancement to remuneration packages, and staff should receive information on their package options clearly and effectively. The service offered by Brooks Macdonald will, I feel, offer employers a real opportunity to enhance the benefits packages they offer to their staff, and also significantly reduce their administrative burden and costs. I believe Brooks Macdonald offers a market-leading product in the Islands and I am thoroughly looking forward to working with our clients to provide them with the employee benefits advice they are looking for.”
