KRS appoints head of partnerships

Key Retirement Solutions and its support service Lifetime Advisory Services has appointed Elizabeth Wilkinson as head of partnerships.

Wilkinson’s role will be to work with businesses in the equity release market through the different services which Key offers.

The role is within Key’s business-to-business support, for those wanting to be involved in the equity release market, either by advising clients directly using LAS or by referring.

Prior to taking up her role with KRS, Wilkinson was corporate account director at Stonebridge, with previous roles at AXA-Sunlife, Aviva and Commercial Union, heading up business development.

Dean Mirfin, business development director at KRS, says: “Our propositions have become increasingly popular, and we felt it was a good time to bring someone on board to focus 100% on the opportunities available with businesses in the equity release market.

“Elizabeth’s experience and relationships within financial services made her an obvious choice, and we are extremely pleased to welcome her to KRS.”

Wilkinson says: “I believe that what KRS offers are vital services for today’s advisers who need support in providing the best and most up-to-date advice to their clients, be this either as a referral partner or through LAS.

“I am excited to be working with Key and look forward to helping businesses get the most out of the propositions available.”
