International advice group Skybound Wealth Management has announced the departure of chief executive Lyon Botha, who steps down from his position to pursue new opportunities after three and a half years in the role.
During his time with Skybound Wealth, Botha guided the company through a period of transition, as well as the attainment of regulatory licences across the world.
As Botha departs, existing chief commercial officer Ian Sweet becomes the company’s chief executive with immediate effect.
He will be supported by two long-standing members of the Skybound Wealth executive team Husain Rangwalla and Peter Gollogly.
Sweet said: “It has been a pleasure to work with Lyon and I would like to personally thank him for all the great work we have achieved as a business under his leadership. The foundations we have built over the last three years will allow us to continue our journey to become the international adviser of choice for both clients and advisers.
“We are well positioned to become a dominant player in the international and domestic wealth management sector. As a business, we remain committed to utilising and developing technology as a way to both enhance how we service clients, and to provide Skybound Wealth’s advisers with the tools that allow them to provide an industry leading proposition to international investors.”
