WT Financial appoints personality as NED
WT Financial Group has appointed noted corporate wellbeing and coaching personality, Chelsea Pottenger, as a Non-Executive Director to succeed outgoing director Michael Harrison.
Pottenger founded corporate wellbeing and coaching educational platform, EQ MINDS, in 2016 and trains thousands of executives and employees of financial services companies and in other industries every year.
Prior to founding EQ MINDS, Pottenger has held senior positions in the product divisions of global healthcare and medical device companies for over a decade, including Johnson and Johnson.
“I’m thrilled to be joining the Board of WTL and excited by the opportunities ahead,” she said.
“I am looking forward bringing fresh perspectives and collaborating with a dedicated team, ensuring WTL remains at the forefront of the dynamic financial landscape to deliver favourable results for the Company and for the advice practices it supports.”
Pottenger’s appointment will come into effect from the firm’s annual general meeting on 26 November.
“We’re so excited that Chelsea has accepted our offer to join the WTL board. She brings an entrepreneurial flare and terrific track record of success that we know will add value,” WTL Managing Director, Keith Cullen, said.
“That she has not previously worked directly in financial services is a key benefit as we continue to pursue fresh ideas on our journey to redefine paradigms in our profession and re-imagine the relationship between advice practices and their licensee.
“That said, Chelsea is well known to many in financial services – and the corporate world more generally, through her extensive work with leading brands as a keynote speaker and performance and wellbeing coach.”
