UK listed wealth management firm Brewin Dolphin has appointed Adam Wilkins as the new head of its Birmingham office, replacing Stephen Glazzard, who will be moving into a consultancy role ahead of his retirement, Brewin said in a statement.

Wilkins joined Brewin Dolphin in 1995 and played a key role in setting-up the Birmingham office which opened the same year. Today he manages a diverse range of portfolios for charities, religious funds, private clients and family trust funds.

He has previously worked for Smith Keen Cutler and Greig Middleton Financial Services.

“Adam has already proved that he is up to the job that lies ahead. This promotion reflects his longstanding commitment and contribution to Brewin Dolphin. His vision will no doubt help drive forward the development of the Birmingham office,” said Richard Platt, Brewin Dolphin’s Midlands regional director.

In other news, Brewin Dolphin announced last week it was closing its Brighton office, as it continues to cut back its regional presence.

It comes hot on the heels of its York office closure in August, while its Chester and Truro branches also closed earlier this year.

Brewin Dolphin's Reigate office is to absorb the firm's Brighton business, the company said. The consolidation of Brighton will be led by division head Richard Arris. The closure of the Brighton hub comes six years after it launched under David Pegler, who joined the firm from UBS Wealth Management. Reigate opened in 1990 and was the first Brewin office to launch outside of London.
