Wealth and investment management firm Brown Shipley has appointed Alan Mathewson as its chief executive.
Mr Mathewson was previously managing director of Santander UK’s wealth management and private banking division.
He replaces Ian Sackfield, who announced in March that he would stand down as soon as a replacement had been identified.
Mr Sackfield will remain with the company to work with “key clients”.
Commenting on the appointment, David Rough, chairman of Brown Shipley, said: “I am delighted that Alan is set to join Brown Shipley.
"He has significant leadership skills, together with both specific wealth management and broad financial services experience, including a successful track record of growing wealth management businesses as a CEO.
“As CEO of Santander’s wealth management and private banking business, Alan has significantly enhanced the client service propositions, particularly through leveraging technological advancements.”
