Movers and Shakers in Corporate Scotland






Baker strengthens Nucleus

Nucleus, the adviser built wrap, has appointed Adam Baker as its new client relations director.

Mr Baker, who formally joins on February 2, will be responsible for the management of the client relations team. He will report directly to Nucleus managing director Stuart Geard.

Mr Baker joins Nucleus from platform provider Transact, where he held various client-servicing roles over 14 years. Latterly he was head of client servicing, managing a team of over 150 and servicing over 110,000 customers.

Mr Baker’s appointment follows the recent strengthening of the client relations team at Nucleus, with the recruitment of five new client relations managers increasing the number of staff to 30.

Founder and chief executive David Ferguson said: “I’m delighted to welcome Adam to the Nucleus team. We have long been public admirers of Transact, who are without doubt industry leaders in client servicing. Adam has been with Transact pretty much since the beginning and has played a pivotal role in positioning them as the acknowledged benchmark for platform servicing.

“Adam is our third senior management hire in as many months and reflects our ongoing commitment to seek out and invest in the very best talent available. The fact we have been able to attract such high-calibre individuals is a great reflection of the strength of the Nucleus business which has been created by the team over the past eight years.

Ms Morrison joins McFrank from Ultimo, the lingerie firm led by Michelle Mone.

McFrank launched with clients including shopping centres Silverburn in Glasgow and Union Square in Aberdeen.

Ms Morrison, who worked for Glasgow-based Wire Media before joining Ultimo, said: “I’m passionate about Scotland and have always been impressed with the work that has come out of Frank PR over the years. I’m looking forward to working with the management team of Frank PR to encapsulate what makes Frank so special and transport it up to Glasgow.”
