WMS - Financial Adviser Services (Formally Fairs plc) has announced the
appointment of Dyfed Wallis as their new Business Development Manager.

Wallis returns to WMS, where he began a career that went on to see him build an enviable sales track record throughout the Financial IT sector. Wallis was tempted back to the Fairs set up as a result of the recent acquisition by WMS and a long-term association with Managing Director, Gary Sawyer.

Commenting on his decision to return Wallis said:

"Since being acquired by WMS the FAIRS product has already strengthened its
position in the market place by winning some significant new business, establishing close links and partnerships with other technology / service providers and significantly boosting its skill base by the recruitment of some of the best people in the business"

Wallis continued:

"When making the decision to join I could see that WMS easily have the most
exciting plans within the industry. They are fully committed to finding the newest and most effective solutions that will add real business benefits to
Financial Advisers. The plans in place will certainly open the eyes of the
industry and I'm excited about the prospect of playing a significant role in
the further success of FAIRS under WMS".

Speaking on Wallis's arrival, Gary Sawyer, Managing Director of WMS - Financial Adviser Services said:

"Dyfed's arrival marks yet another positive landmark for the FAIRS product, which is continuing to flourish under our new operational name WMS - Financial Adviser Services".

"Dyfed has a long and established track record in developing new business streams and is exceptionally adept at demonstrating the real business benefits of our software to individual Financial Adviser outfits both large and small."

"Dyfed has long shared our philosophy that Financial Adviser software is about recognising the individual needs of a Financial Adviser practice and delivering a benefits driven solution rather than offering them a packaged box off the shelf."
