The Fry Group announces leadership changes


The Fry Group, the international tax, financial and estate planning firm, has announced two leadership changes following continued growth and successful expansion. 

Jeremy Woodley, the company’s current CEO, will be moving into the position of Chairman, with David Pugh, Chief Strategy and Commercial Officer, taking up the role of CEO. Both appointments will be phased in over the next 12 months to enable a smooth operational transition period. 

Woodley joined The Fry Group in 2005, leading the UK team for 11 years before taking up the role of CEO in 2018. Pugh managed The Fry Group’s Singapore operation from 2010, following successful stints with Hargreaves Lansdown and Truestone Asset Management in the UK. He returned to the UK to take up a Board position at the firm in 2018. 

Jeremy Woodley, CEO, comments: “Times and global markets change, and we have seen nothing short of a significant shift in the way we all live and work in the past 12 months. Taking up the role of Chairman allows me the scope to consider broader market trends, with the aim of growing our global position as a leading independent wealth management company.” 

David Pugh, Chief Strategy and Commercial Officer, adds: “The Fry Group is an exceptional business, which for well over a hundred years has delivered outstanding work looking after people’s finances. Our ultimate aim, as always, is to ensure that The Fry Group continues to maintain its relevance and offer intelligent advice to support our clients and their families, helping each one achieve financial freedom. In this new phase we’re also keen to concentrate on doing well by doing good, with a new Corporate Social Responsibility policy and a stronger focus on the wellbeing of our team.” 

The Fry Group was established in 1898, and now manages GBP2 billion in funds for clients around the world. The company operates from eight geographical locations across the UK, Europe, Middle East and Asia.
