LEBC Group founder Jack McVitie dies
3 September 2020
LEBC Group founder and chief executive, Jack McVitie has passed away after a short illness.
McVitie founded LEBC Group in 2000 with a focus on delivering comprehensive advice tailored to client needs and a commitment to transform access to financial advice in the UK. His main focus was overseeing the development of the business, incorporating technological developments informed by the client’s needs and wishes.
Speaking on behalf of the Board of LEBC Holdings, Chairman Oliver Bogue said: “I speak for everyone at LEBC when I say that we are all deeply saddened by Jack’s death. Jack had guided LEBC with outstanding stewardship for the past 20 years and always acted in the very best interests of the Group’s clients and staff, indeed all stakeholders, putting them at the forefront of all that he did.
“When Jack and the founding team started LEBC, as long ago as 2000, it had but three branches and a staff of 24; he spearheaded LEBC’s growth, which has seen the business become one of the largest independently owned national IFAs. Jack McVitie will be sorely missed by everyone who knew him, and our thoughts are with his family through this sad time.”
An LEBC spokesperson added: “Jack was unique and held in the highest regard by competitors, clients and colleagues alike. We will continue to build on his legacy to make financial advice accessible to all, and to ensure LEBC Group remains at the forefront of innovation in financial advice.”
