Liontrust appoints marketing director and head of marketing

RELATED TOPICS​

Liontrust is making two internal promotions in its marketing department following the departure of Rob Page as marketing director at the end of October. 

From 1 November, Simon Hildrey will succeed Page as marketing and communications director and Nick Pilkington will be appointed head of marketing. 
 
Hildrey will be responsible for the marketing department, including the communications functions. This responsibility will include the marketing strategy, raising Liontrust’s profile among clients and being part of the product development team. 
 
Hildrey joined Liontrust in July 2008 as head of communications. Prior to this, he was a financial journalist for nine years, including six as a freelancer.  
 
Pilkington, who will report to Hildrey, will manage the marketing team. His responsibilities will include fund promotional literature, e-communications strategy, future advertising programmes and third party marketing support.
 
Pilkington has worked in the marketing department at Liontrust for ten years and is currently marketing manager.
 
Nigel Legge, chief executive of Liontrust, says: “Simon has a wealth of communications’ experience and excellent industry and client contacts based on more than ten years in the investment funds industry, at Liontrust and as a financial journalist. 
 
“Nick complements this with the continuity of having worked in Liontrust’s marketing team for the past 10 years and this is a natural move into the role of head of marketing.  
 
“It is a strategic goal to further raise the profile of the business over the next 12 months as this will provide the necessary foundation for us to develop deeper and broader distribution.  
 
“Having assessed several external options, I am very confident that Simon and Nick will do a tremendous job for Liontrust as we seek to raise the awareness of both our existing and new investment management teams.”
