Henderson Loggie Financial Planning appoints Susan Pringle as managing director
Henderson Loggie Financial Planning has announced the appointment of industry expert Susan Pringle as managing director to lead the delivery of the firm’s Scotland-wide growth strategy.
Ms Pringle takes up the role in April from her position as head of operations and executive director with the firm. Henderson Loggie Financial Planning is a financial planning subsidiary of the independent chartered accountancy firm, Henderson Loggie.
She brings over 30 years of business strategy and operational experience in the financial services industry, having previously worked with a stockbroker and the financial planning arm of national insurance broker Willis, before joining Henderson Loggie Financial Planning in 2003. She went on to spearhead the expansion of the firm’s corporate team in 2013 and was appointed executive director of the firm in 2018.
In her new role, Ms Pringle will work closely with Henderson Loggie’s tax, payroll and corporate finance teams to drive expansion strategy and her future plans include rolling out a financial wellbeing service for owner-managed businesses across a wider geographic footprint, and a recruitment drive.
Commenting on her appointment, Susan Pringle said: “I am very ambitious for the future of Henderson Loggie Financial Planning. Working independently as part of a large and successful accountancy practice brings many benefits. We share the same purpose in striving to help staff achieve their full potential and personal ambitions, and my appointment is a testament to that.
“I chose early on in my career not to become a financial planner as I have always been more interested in shaping exceptional client service and business strategy. My focus is to structure the company for growth and build our teams around a culture of continuous improvement.
“We also aim to leave a legacy for the communities we work in. I am passionate about financial wellbeing for everyone, regardless of levels of wealth, and we will continue to be active in providing widely accessible information, education and planning services. This is a package our corporate clients appreciate, allowing them to focus on business development knowing their employees’ financial health is in safe hands.”
David Smith, managing partner of parent organisation Henderson Loggie, added: “The financial services industry has faced many challenges in recent years, and Susan has been instrumental in developing staff, strategy and processes that have turned them into opportunities, and in building the firm’s reputation as a trusted adviser. She has a depth of invaluable experience and I’m excited to work with her as we continue to develop our businesses in tandem.”
