Graves, who resigned from Pink in June, takes up his position on 1 November and will become a shareholder in the network.

He will be responsible for the network’s provider relationships and distribution as well as having overall responsibility for its sales division.

The network’s founder, Martin Wilson, says: “Both Mark and I are looking forward to what we can achieve in this next phase of development. We share the same fundamental ethics, values and ambition to create a successful network that is totally independent and keeps its focus on what’s right for customers, by working in partnership with its advisers and firms.

”

It’s important that we built a solid infrastructure, with experienced individuals who all share the vision of our network. Now Mark, alongside the rest of the board and management team, will help drive this vision and establish our place in the market.”

Graves was asked to run Pink in January 2012. Prior to this he was financial services development director at LSL.
