S&S director to join advisory company

Former Stroud & Swindon commercial director Paul Chafer will join M2 Financial at the end of May.

He will take up the position of commercial director at the financial advice firm and will be tasked with generating revenue streams through sales, new ventures and fresh partnerships.

He will report to Mark Howard, managing director of the Nottingham-based firm, which provides independent advice on personal finance, tax, retirement and loan planning.

Chafer says: “M2 Financial is a growing firm with a sales force of about 25 staff. It aims to expand this team and has a three-year plan to develop the business.”

Mark Howard, managing director of M2 Financial, says: “Chafer is the type of individual we’ve been seeking for the past couple of years. He has impressed us from the beginning and has a good understanding of our sector.

“His enthusiasm and ideas will help us grow our business in the ways we want. He puts clients first and this attitude fits perfectly with our model.”
