Non-Executive Director Changes


Nucleus (AIM: NUC), a leading independent wrap platform provider, is pleased to announce that Alfio Tagliabue has been appointed as a non-executive director of the Company with immediate effect.

Alfio Tagliabue has been the CEO of Sanlam Investments UK since 2017 and also covers strategic initiatives within Sanlam UK, having previously joined Sanlam UK in 2016 as CFO. Mr Tagliabue's previous roles include Group Chief Financial Officer at Ashcourt Rowan, 12 years as a board-level consultant to the asset and wealth management industry and Engagement Director at Mars & Co. Alfio started his career in 1992 with Frost & Sullivan, a sector analysis consultancy, and holds an accounting, economics and business administration degree from Bocconi University.

The company also announces that that Jeremy Gibson, one of the two board appointees pursuant to the relationship agreement with majority shareholder Sanlam UK Limited ("Sanlam UK"), has resigned as a non-executive director of the Company and steps down from his role on the Nucleus Board concurrently with Alfio Tagliabue's appointment today. Alfio fills Jeremy's position as Sanlam UK nominee. Alfio will be a member of the risk committee and the audit committee.


Commenting on the changes, Angus Samuels, Chairman, said: "On behalf of the Board, I am pleased to welcome Alfio to Nucleus. Alfio brings strong financial experience and an extensive knowledge in the asset and wealth management industry. Alfio will be a valuable adviser and contributor to both the Board and the Nucleus business and we all very much look forward to working with him. I would also like to wish Jeremy well in his future endeavours and thank him for his valuable contributions to the Company. The Board has benefited hugely from his expertise during his time as a non-executive director."
