The UK private bank has made a couple of board appointments.

Coutts & Co, the UK private bank, has appointed the former chief executive of St James’s Place and Virgin Direct, Mark Lund, as a non-executive director.

Lund is the vice chairman at British Ski and Snowboard, the national governing body for snow sports athletes, and a non-executive director of Skipton Building Society’s financial advice business and of My CSP.  He is also chairman of Equiniti’s regulated financial services businesses, Coutts said in a statement yesterday.

In his new role, he will join Francesca Barnes as an independent director on the Coutts & Co board.

Brian Mulholland has been appointed as finance director of the board for Coutts & Co. Mulholland joined the bank in February last year after having worked at Coutts’ parent firm, Royal Bank of Scotland, for four years, most recently as global head of capital planning. Prior to this, he held senior finance roles for Nationwide, AXA, Vodafone and National Power.
