There is a new man on the board at Broker Network.

Commenting on the appointment, Ian Clark, Broker Network’s Executive Chairman said: “I am delighted to welcome Paul to the board. I’ve known and worked with him for over 20 years and I can’t think of a better and more suited individual to be joining the team. Paul will be a significant contributor to the development of our business in the regional broking market as we continue to grow and expand.
“It’s experience such as Paul’s that will help us drive forward our strategy and maintain our position as the UK’s largest Network of independent brokers.”
