Tilney Bestinvest expands comms team

14 September 2015
 

UK investment and financial planning group Tilney Bestinvest today announces the appointment of Gillian Kyle as senior associate, communications.

As senior associate, Gillian will assist in generating media coverage across the national, regional, personal finance and investment trade press. She will report to Jason Hollands, Tilney Bestinvest’s managing director of business development and communications.

Gillian Kyle joins from PR agency Broadgate Mainland, where she worked across a number of financial services companies including St. James’s Place, Walker Crips and City Financial.

“We are delighted to welcome Gillian to the team,” said Jason Hollands on the new hire. “She joins Tilney Bestinvest at a really fantastic time. The merger of Tilney and Bestinvest last year has increased our UK-wide office footprint and we are seeing strong organic growth which we are also looking to enhance through selective acquisition opportunities and the forthcoming launch of an exciting joint venture business with Saga. All of this creates increased demand for effective communications nationally, locally and with trade media.

“We have a great story to tell and I very much look forward to working with Gillian to ensure we deliver this and maintain our reputation as go-to authoritative commentators on investments and pensions.”

Gillian can be reached at Gillian.kyle@tilneybestinvest.co.uk
