David Dalton-Brown will step down as chief executive of the cross-industry financial services membership body.

Both will be overseen, as currently, by the Tisa Group board.
Carol Knight, currently chief operating officer at Tisa, will take over as chief executive of the Tisa traditional membership business unit, and Harry Weber-Brown, digital innovation director at Tisa, will become chief executive of Tisa’s digital business unit.
