Goppy says, “As always at Paradigm, we seek to bring in highly experienced people who fully understand the middleman market and can offer a wide range of support to member companies in the regions they cover. Sarah certainly fits the bill here and has extensive experience and knowledge of working with and on behalf of advisors.
Blackwood says, “Paradigm has built a considerable reputation for the strength of its proposition and the range of support it provides to intermediaries, so I am very pleased to join the company that deals directly with member companies. I look forward to working with existing and new contacts in these regions to demonstrate where we can add value, as they seek to get the most out of their membership.
