Signia Wealth appoints new chair

Signia Wealth has strengthened its board with the appointment of Paul Lester as executive chair.

The firm is seeking to increase its assets under management to £5 billion in the next five years.

In his new role, Lester will advise and govern the executive team as well as support Signia’s advisory board.

He is currently chair of private company Greenergy International, as well as the FTSE 250 firm John Laing Infrastructure fund, and  private equity backed companies Parabis, Survitec and Peverel.

Prior to this, Lester worked at infrastructure group Balfour Beatty where he was group managing director.
