Freelance Professional Services Limited (“FPS Group”) has appointed Matthew Parsons as managing director of the firm. This follows the resignation of Matthew Huddleston, who has held the position since 2012.
Matt Parsons joined FPS Group in 2009 following a distinguished career within banking, life assurance and the recruitment industry. Whilst sales and marketing have been his main focus since joining the company, his new position will give him overall responsibility for performance and strategy of the firm.
“I am hugely honoured to have been appointed as Managing Director of FPS Group” said Matt Parsons. “Matt Huddleston has been both a mentor and friend throughout our time working together. As sales director, I have been heavily involved in the growth of the business over recent years. Whilst the market is in a state of flux given recent legislative changes, we continue to be in the perfect position to capitalise on this. Our compliant approach and customer service ethos is exactly what this industry needs.”
Matthew Huddleston added “I am delighted to have Matt as my successor to the role. He has been of enormous support to me during my time as managing director and is unquestionably the right person to take the business forward. His boundless energy, enthusiasm for the business and superb industry knowledge will, without doubt, drive FPS to new levels of success. Over the next couple of months I very much look forward to assisting him in every way possible with a smooth transition into the job.”
Matt’s appointment continues a successful tradition of promoting staff from within the business and forms part of the group’s long term development and growth strategy.
