Octopus appoints Nick Jones as area sales director


Octopus Investments (Octopus) has appointed Nick Jones as an area sales director with responsibility for the central and west UK regions.

Jones joins from Old Mutual Wealth (previously Skandia), where he has held sales manager roles since 2008. He has most recently been the head of sales in the South for the firm, a position he has been in for the last three years, with responsibilities for delivering and co-ordinating their UK sales strategy throughout the region. Jones has also worked in senior sales positions for Ascentric and Aegon Scottish Equitable (now Aegon) during his 26-year career.
Neil Buckland, head of sales at Octopus, says: “Nick’s appointment reinforces our commitment to building a team that delivers a first-rate service to our adviser and investor customer base, enabling advisers in particular to find smart and efficient ways of helping their clients with their financial planning needs. We have seen significant year-on-year growth of our sales force, now totalling over 70 employees, and we look forward to benefiting from Nick’s experience as we develop our nationwide sales strategy.”
Jones says: “Octopus has an exceptional ethos of striving to make a difference for its customers in all that it does. I am excited to join the company at a time when it is expanding into new areas as well as maintaining its strong focus offering a range of tax-efficient product solutions.”
