Simon Chalk joins Age Partnership

Chalk will also work closely with the company in other areas, such as public relations, technical support and trade representation.

Tim Loy, chief executive of Age Partnership, said: “Simon is a hugely respected figure within the equity release sector and shares our enthusiasm for this important market.

“That he was recently awarded the accolade of Equity Release Planner of the Year underlines his customer focus and technical excellence so we are, of course, delighted to welcome him to the Age Partnership team.”

Simon Chalk, Age Partnership’s new technical manager, equity release, said: “This exciting opportunity will fully engage all my skills and knowledge, effectively bringing together in one role the two things I enjoy doing most: serving clients of professional introducers; and playing an important part in providing a broad range of support to the wider equity release business.

“Age Partnership is a highly respected and successful company in its own right, so I consider it quite an honour to be invited by Tim to take up such a prestigious senior position.”
