Subject to Financial Services Authority approval, she will take over the role of CEO from Martin Davis, who recently left Openwork to assume a position outside of the distribution sector.
McIntyre has held the position of chief operating officer at Openwork since she joined the firm in August 2010.
Kate Avery, chair of Openwork, says that McIntyre has proved herself to be extremely capable and talented since she joined the company.
She says: “We believe she will do an outstanding job in driving Openwork forward as we seek to prepare the business and, most importantly, our advisers in advance of Retail Distribution Review implementation next year.”
McIntyre adds: “This is an exciting time to assume the role of CEO and I look forward to building on the progress made to date in ensuring our advisers have the best possible support they require to achieve significant success under the incoming regulation.”
