National IFA Towry has signed an ex-footballer Pete Cormack as an adviser for its Edinburgh office.
Cormack, who spent 16 years as a defender in both the English and Scottish leagues and played for Newcastle United and Greenock Morton joins Towry from the Royal Bank of Scotland where he was a senior financial planning manager for ten years.
Cormack said: 'My professional footballing career across many Scottish clubs gave me a strong skill set for a position in financial services and I have built upon my playing career with a proven track record as an adviser. I’m looking forward to bringing these skills to new clients at Towry.'
Ross Cameron, wealth advice manager at Towry's Edinburgh office said there was a trend for former sports stars to break into the financial services market at the end of their playing careers.
