Intrinsic finance director steps aside

The finance director at Old Mutual Wealth’s network Intrinsic has left the company after more than five years in the role.

Simon Brunt began at Intrinsic in 2012 and stepped down in January.

Darren Sharkey, who is finance director at the Old Mutual Wealth platform business, will take over from Brunt as finance director of the network. He will continue in his role at the platform. 

Sharkey has worked at Old Mutual Wealth for more than 20 years.

Brunt started at Intrinsic in 2010. Before taking this role he was a director at the Openwork network.

Intrinsic has described it as a planned transition due to Brunt wanting to take a career break.

Intrinsic chief executive, Andy Thompson, said Brunt was crucial during the company's transition into Old Mutual Wealth. 

‘Simon has played a crucial role in supporting the growth and development of Intrinsic and the transition that has seen the network become part of Old Mutual Wealth,' he said.

‘He leaves the business in an extremely strong position and completed a handover to incoming financial director, Darren Sharkey, at the end of January.

‘Darren has been with Old Mutual Wealth for over ten years and comes with a strong understanding of the Intrinsic business.'
