The new senior hire, described as an "outstanding candidate," has extensive experience in financial services.
UK wealth manager Brooks Macdonald has appointed Maarten Slendebroek as chairman and as non-executive director, subject to regulatory approval.
Starting immediately, he will succeed Richard Price, the acting chairman. After completing a nine-year term, Price intends to step down from the board once Slendebroek receives regulatory approval, the firm said in a statement.
“Maarten Slendebroek was the outstanding candidate and we are extremely pleased he has agreed to become chairman. Maarten has extensive experience in financial services, including as CEO of Jupiter for five years from February 2014 and as chair of the supervisory board of Robeco since August 2020," Robert Burgess, senior independent director who led the process to appoint a successor to Price, said.
Slendebroek is currently a director of Robeco Holding, Robeco Institutional Asset Management, Mintus Group, Mintus Trading, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment Trust, and 32 Fitzjohns Avenue.
During the last five years, Slendebroek has served in senior roles at Mintus Prometa and Jupiter Fund Management.
Brooks Macdonald is an AIM listed investment management group with funds under management of £16.9 billion ($21.3 billion). It has 14 offices across the UK and Crown Dependencies, including London, Birmingham, East Anglia, Exeter, Leeds, Manchester, Nuneaton, Southampton, Tunbridge Wells, Scotland, Wales, Jersey, Guernsey and Isle of Man.
