Ashcourt Rowan has poached Steven Midgley from National Australia Group as a business director for its financial planning division.

Midgley, formerly a regional director at National Australia Group, will join the board of Ashcourt Rowan Financial Planning.

In the newly-created role, he will report to Jonathan Polin, group chief executive officer (CEO), and will be responsible for providing business and operational support for the management of the financial planning business and its national development.

Commenting on the hire, Polin (pictured) said: 'Steven has a huge amount of experience and expertise in the financial planning industry, which will be invaluable as we look to develop this part of the business.

He added: 'This is the latest in a series of senior hires for the company, which includes the appointment of David Palmer as the business director for our asset management business, and ensures we are well positioned to capitalise on the growth opportunities that come our way.'
