Old Mutual Wealth, one of the UK’s leading wealth management companies, announces the appointment of Paul Hucknall as HR Director and a member of the Old Mutual Wealth Executive Committee (subject to regulatory approval).  Paul will join the business on 1 January 2018.

Reporting to Paul Feeney, CEO of Old Mutual Wealth, he will be responsible for directing Old Mutual Wealth’s HR function in preparation for the business’ proposed listing on the London and Johannesburg Stock Exchanges in 2018.

Paul brings a wealth of experience from working at board level in publicly listed financial services companies, as well as undertaking HR focused roles within that industry for over 20 years.  He joins Old Mutual Wealth from Lloyds Banking Group, where he has worked for almost a decade, most recently as the People Director, where his responsibilities included reward, performance and HR centres of excellence.  Prior to joining Lloyds Banking Group, he spent six years with Bank of America.  In addition, Paul is Chairman of the CityHR Association and a Trustee Director of the Woodard Schools Benefit Fund, which is an educational charity.

Paul Hucknall comments:

“I am very excited to be joining Old Mutual Wealth at such an important time in the company’s history.  I look forward to working with Paul, the executive team and the Board in continuing to build the UK’s leading wealth management business.”

Paul Feeney adds:

“I am delighted that Paul has agreed to join our team. His wealth of experience from working within large, publicly listed financial services companies will be a valuable addition to our business as we prepare to embark on the next phase of our corporate journey.

“On behalf of everyone at Old Mutual Wealth, I would like to thank Tracey for leading and developing the effective HR function we have today and for the personal support that she has given me in my role as CEO over the last five years.  Tracey will leave the business at the end of the year and we wish her well for the future.”

Tracey Hahn concludes:

“I have enjoyed being part of the Executive Committee that has helped transform Old Mutual Wealth into the unique wealth management business it is today.  We have made huge strides in modernising our business, raising the importance of culture and creating an environment that enables our people to reach their full potential.  I believe the organisation is now well positioned for the next phase of its journey.”
