4 May 2016

has appointed Guy Healey as its new head of private banking.

Healey was most recently managing director of Lloyds Bank's international private banking business, based in Switzerland, from 2012 to 2014. There, he led a team with £10 billion ($14 billion) in client assets under management. He previously served as director of Lloyds Bank's UK high net worth business.

He fills the role vacated by Hugh Titcomb who left the firm last year after almost two years as private banking head. He has since become chief executive of UK-based Thomas Miller Investment. 

“Guy has extensive knowledge of private banking and significant senior leadership experience. He has a proven track record of business development which, combined with his background in M&A, will be key to helping us continue our growth and acquisition focus,” said Ian Sackfield, CEO of Brown Shipley.

The senior hire follows March's appointments of Don Smith as chief investment officer and Alex Brandreth as deputy CIO.

Brown Shipley, part of Luxembourg-headquartered KBL European Private Bankers, has offices in London, Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds, Edinburgh and Nottingham.
