Charles Stanley strengthens intermediary offering with new appointment


Wealth manager Charles Stanley has appointed Mark Pittaccio (pictured) as Head of Intermediary Distribution.

Pittaccio joins Charles Stanley from IN Partnership, where he was Group Investment Director responsible for the creation and delivery of the network’s investment strategy, client proposition and business transition programme to more than 300 advisory businesses. Prior to that, he was Investment Director at Thinc Group and founder of Highfield Financial Services. 
Pittaccio has spent over 20 years in the intermediary sector and has particular experience in transitioning advisory businesses from a traditional transactional model to a service-based fee model.  He is also an accomplished conference speaker, speaking on a range of topics from retirement issues to his charity work, which includes completing the Tour de France route.
In his role at Charles Stanley, Pittaccio will be responsible for leading the firm’s distribution strategy to the intermediary market which will include developing the national sales team and assisting advisers in the development of their own client offering, thereby helping them to build value within their own business. 
Pittaccio says: “Through my own experience as an adviser and having worked with advisory businesses for the last 20 years I have gained a real understanding of the challenges that intermediaries face. Charles Stanley has a wide range of products, services and tools on offer geared towards helping advisers help their clients. We will be developing these and building an expert team to support our intermediary partners.”
Christopher Aldous, Head of Distribution at Charles Stanley, says: “We are fully committed to building and enhancing our services to Intermediaries. Mark’s experience and advisory perspective therefore represents an extremely valuable addition to our offering and provides a more consultative approach to intermediaries which will bring real value to their business.”
