- Mark Hobbs, CEO and chairman of New Leaf Distribution

At 35 years old, Daniel Hobbs looks set to become the youngest network leader in financial services as he assumes the role of CEO at financial advisory network, New Leaf Distribution.

Daniel, currently managing director at New Leaf, will take the helm at the network while Sam Wallis, currently investment director, will assume the role of MD.

Mark Hobbs will transition from CEO to chairman once FCA approval is granted, continuing to provide strategic direction and support to the new leadership team.

New Leaf now plans to enhance development opportunities for mortgage brokers, allowing them to specialise in, and potentially transition to, financial adviser roles.

Daniel Hobbs commented: “I’m incredibly honoured to be taking on the role of CEO at New Leaf Distribution. I’ve been fortunate to learn from Mark’s guidance over the years, and I’m excited to leverage that experience to build upon our success and explore new opportunities, particularly in the advice gap space. As always, we remain committed to being known as the network that knows your name and that places a cap on the number of advisers it works with to ensure quality and service standards are unrivalled. Advisers choosing to partner with New Leaf will be valued and respected.”

Mark Hobbs, CEO and chairman of New Leaf Distribution, added: “We're excited to launch some incredible initiatives in the coming months, all focused on the future and addressing the advice gap. We'll continue to build the best offering for IFAs and brokers in the UK, with a focus on quality over quantity. This is a new chapter for New Leaf Distribution and we are confident that Daniel and Sam will lead us to even greater success.”
