Square Mile has nabbed Sally Boyle from Octopus Investments as a business development director.
The research and consultancy group said Boyle (pictured) will provide senior-level support in developing and strengthening Square Mile’s relationships with IFAs and report to commercial director Steve Kenny.
Boyle joins from Octopus Investments where she has spent the last decade in a variety of roles, including head of marketing and most recently a sales director for the north and southeast of England.
Prior to that Boyle worked in publishing within the commercial operations of hedge fund magazine HFM Week.
Square Mile managing director Richard Romer-Lee said the global pandemic has shone a light on the importance of nurturing strong business relationships and effective client outreach.
“Sally’s appointment is a clear demonstration of our focus on excellence in this area,” he said.
“As Square Mile looks to the future and the continued growth of the company, Sally will be central to building on our broad footprint within the IFA community, while ensuring that our existing clients continue to receive the highest levels of attention.”
