The Blacktower Financial Management Group of Companies has appointed Gavin Pluck as a Group Director. The news follows significant expansion to the brand’s global footprint and continued acceleration of its growth strategy, in the face of a challenging year.

Pluck joins Blacktower having resigned from his position as GWM Group Managing Director in February 2020, following the company’s acquisition by SkyBound Capital.

“Having taken the time to look at our industry landscape and ever-changing regulatory requirements, it was evident to me that Blacktower is in a perfectly poised position to thrive in a post-Brexit environment,” says Pluck. ‘I am excited by the possibilities that lie ahead and eager to begin assisting John Westwood and the Board in taking Blacktower to its full potential of being the leading International Financial Services brand in the industry.”

John Westwood, Founder and Group Managing Director of Blacktower, says: “Strategically, we are now positioning the business to move to the next level of market superiority and to support this ambition, I am very pleased to welcome Gavin Pluck’s expertise and experience.

“2020 was a turbulent year for many in our industry and we were no exception to those difficulties, however we are proud to confirm that The Blacktower Group of Companies arrives into 2021 in strong stead, and this facilitates our continued ambition and intent to further bolster our market positioning and reputation.”

As a founding member of the GWM (Guardian Wealth Management) Group of Companies, Pluck has over 18 years industry experience. He has been largely responsible for setting up and growing a number of regulated businesses under the GWM banner across the UK, EU, Switzerland, UAE and US.

Before joining GWM and moving to Switzerland, Pluck was UK and European Sales Director at a London based Plc where he spent 12 years overseeing four offices and 60 consultants, providing staffing services to the Wealth Management and banking sector. 

Pluck will be responsible for expanding Blacktower’s licensing footprint into further regulated jurisdictions and work with the existing Blacktower Board to enhancing the brand position and expanding on its already far-reaching presence.
