Gaynor Rigby, managing partner at Equilibrium Financial Planning in Wilmslow, has announced her intention to ‘pass the baton’ by stepping down from her role in the summer – as the business continues its trajectory for growth.
Gaynor has spent the past few years developing Equilibrium’s senior management team with the help of non-executive Chris Brindley. She describes the move as a ‘natural evolution’ for the business.
Since joining the business in 2010, Gaynor has led Equilibrium’s growth to 94 employees and £1.1bn of assets under management. She is credited with further developing a culture that has led to Equilibrium receiving many industry accreditations, including being among the Sunday Times Top 100 Companies to work.
“Equilibrium’s purpose is ‘making people’s lives better’. That purpose is now clearly established in our culture, demonstrated by the team and experienced by every one of our clients. I am very proud of what I have accomplished during my time here. I hope that, when the time comes to leave, my legacy is that a little bit of my DNA will always be part of Equilibrium and that the team takes what we’ve done so far and uses it to make the next chapter bigger and better.”
“Those who work with Gaynor know the energy and personality that she brings to her work, and we would like to thank her for her invaluable contribution and commitment to both the team here and to the business. Her DNA will certainly remain a part of the business long after her departure later this year.”
