The Right Mortgage and Protection Network has hired Gavin Earnshaw to be its new compliance director.
Earnshaw most recently worked as the compliance and risk assurance manager at Castle Trust.
From the 29th of July 2015, Earnshaw will be making sure financial advisers are doing their job by the book.
Martin Wilson, managing director at The Right Mortgage and Protection Network, said: "Gavin has a great history of leading similar functions and has built a reputation for a diligent, but pragmatic approach to compliance."
Earnshaw has previously worked as a compliance manager at Police Mutual, project and operations manager at Direct Valuations and director at Regis7.
Martin said: "This is an incredibly important role that strengthens our service to firms and I look forward to working with Gavin to provide a robust but sensible infrastructure for our members to work within."
Earnshaw commented: "Now is the time for Networks to stop and think about how they support individual members and what it means to achieve consistent positive outcomes for customers. I am passionate about evolving the typical Network approach to compliance by ensuring that advisers have time to properly engage with their customers to deliver a great service, whatever business model they operate.
"Networks have fallen into an over-automated, tick box mentality and our aim is to understand businesses at a more individual level, avoiding a ‘one size fits all' approach to compliance. The Right Mortgage and Protection Network are reassuringly similar in their views and I am excited to work with Martin and the team."
