Langley joins Ginger Group from a role at Sovereign, where he was responsible for the creation and growth of Sovereign's aligned distribution channel, Sovnet, which has been credited for that company's industry-leading position.

Ginger Group CEO David Whyte says, "It's a coup to have Leighton join our team. He has more than 30 years' experience in all facets of the financial adviser sales and development business, and has worked in a variety of distribution models and complementary management roles.

"The Sovereign channel that he created has been recognised as an industry model, and he understands exactly what advisers seek and need. He is driven by a desire to help them operate productively and fruitfully as they grow their own businesses, which accords with Ginger Group's goals."

Langley's role will involve assisting advisers to adjust their businesses and services to the new regulatory environment.

He says the new regulations "present tremendous opportunities for forward-thinking practitioners. The new marketplace will see advisers enjoying a more versatile relationship with product suppliers, the freedom to develop adviser businesses without undue constraints, and greater capacity to grow and prosper."

Ginger Group consists of more than 400 financial services practitioners. It formed out of three established distribution organisations: PIS, Minerva and Brokers Independent Group (BIG).
