By James Story on August 5, 2020

The leadership team welcomes Andy Longhurst to his new role as managing director.

The Lead Tech leadership team are pleased to announce that Andy Longhurst, formerly our Head of Strategy, has been appointed as our new Managing Director with immediate effect.

As part of this role, Andy will oversee day-to-day business operations and ensure the company is constantly moving towards fulfilling its short-term and long-term objectives. Since joining Lead Tech a little over a year ago, he has brought a great mix of leadership, inspiration, operational experience, technical breadth, and passion for driving the teams forward. We are lucky to have someone that has such a wide set of skills for this opportunity.

Now let’s hear from the man himself:

“The last four months have really highlighted how resilient a business we can be and has helped start to shape how we will all be working in the future. I’m really looking forward to supporting Lead Tech as we enter into an exciting phase where the need for our customers to receive quality financial advice has never been greater.

“With our wealth of experience (and many great personalities!) across each team, I feel we are greatly positioned as a business to tackle the many marketplace challenges and I’m relishing working closer with each team in achieving our aims to become the preferred partner in all of our markets.”

Over the next few years, Lead Tech’s strategy will focus on growing through a combination of accelerating growth in our existing markets and unlocking growth in new opportunities. This is an exciting time for Lead Tech and we know that Andy will both uphold our values and build on our strengths.
