Leadership changes at The Fry Group

Following a period of continued growth and successful expansion, we’re delighted to share two key changes to our leadership team.

With effect from April 2022, Jeremy Woodley, our current CEO, will be moving into the position of Chairman, with David Pugh, Chief Strategy and Commercial Officer, taking up the role of CEO. Both appointments will be phased in over the next 12 months to enable a smooth operational transition period.

Jeremy first joined The Fry Group in 2005, leading the UK team for 11 years before taking up the role of CEO in 2018.  David managed our Singapore operation from 2010, following successful stints with Hargreaves Lansdown and Truestone Asset Management in the UK.  He returned to the UK to take up a Board position in 2018.

Jeremy Woodley, CEO, commented: “Times and global markets change, and we have seen nothing short of a significant shift in the way we all live and work in the past 12 months. Taking up the role of Chairman allows me the scope to consider broader market trends, with the aim of growing our global position as a leading independent wealth management company.”

David Pugh, Chief Strategy and Commercial Officer added: “The Fry Group is an exceptional business, which for well over a hundred years has delivered outstanding work looking after people’s finances. Our ultimate aim, as always, is to ensure that we continue to maintain our relevance and offer intelligent advice to support our clients and their families, helping each one achieve financial freedom. In this new phase we’re also keen to concentrate on doing well by doing good, with a new Corporate Social Responsibility policy and a stronger focus on the wellbeing of our team.”
