Brewin Dolphin, the UK-based wealth manager, has appointed Andrew Westenberger as group finance director from 1 January 2013, when the incumbent retires.
Robin Bayford will step down at the start of next year after more than two decades at Brewin. He joined the firm’s board in 1990 and took up full time employment as finance director the following year. Before that, he was a manager at Ernst & Young and group financial controller at AGB Research.
His replacement, Westenberger, was finance director at Evolution Group between 2009 and August last year. He was also a director of Evolution's former wealth management subsidiary Williams de Broe, which is now owned by Investec. From 2000 to 2008, he worked for Barclays Capital in various finance roles in London and New York.
