With over 20 years of experience in financial services, before B&B Wiggans worked at HBOS and Cornerstone Estate Agents and will assume responsibility for HML’s sales, marketing and client relations teams as the organisation pursues growth.
When B&B was absorbed by the government Wiggans became commercial director at UKAR, the state-backed institution charged with running down £80bn of assets originating from the nationalised parts of B&B and Northern Rock.
Andrew Jones, chief executive at HML, says: “I’m pleased to have someone of Wiggans’s calibre in the market on board. He brings proven commercial focus to our client and prospect disciplines and his value-led approach will resonate with our business partners.”
