HL Partnership hires former Burns Anderson boss Hughes

Business-Handshake-Finance-Deal-700.jpgThe former chief executive of Burns Anderson, the Bristol-based advice network that went into administration in 2012, has become a director at mortgage and protection network HL Partnership.

The South Coast-based mortgage network has taken on Mike Hughes as a non-executive director following his previous roles at companies including Burns Anderson, Legal & General, Positive Solutions, Thesis Asset Management and platform Novia.

Hughes says: “This is a company that has been one of the better kept secrets among networks. It has quietly gone about building up a nurturing environment for its members, backed by some of the best IT, training and compliance support systems I have seen.”

Hughes’s role will be to advise and help the board to build on its appeal to the adviser market.
