UK-based private bank has made three new hires at its Edinburgh office.

Douglas Noble, Neil Mitchell and Gair Brisbane were all formerly at Barclay’s Wealth and will focus on growing and the wealth management and private banking offering, as well as the client base in Scotland, Brown Shipley said in a statement.

Noble has over 30 years of experience in the industry, gained at Bank of Scotland, Adam & Co and most recently Barclay’s Wealth.

Earlier this year, Brown Shipley appointed Peter Botham in the newly created role of head of IFA investment and Hugh Titcomb as its new head of private banking.

Brown Shipley’s parent company, KBL European Private Bankers, was bought by Luxembourg-based Precision Capital at the start of August 2012 for €1 billion ($1.3 billion). KBL European Private Bankers is a European network of local private banking businesses, of which Brown Shipley is the UK arm.

In other recent news, in December, Peter Stiles, head of the bank’s Manchester office, stepped down. He remains at the bank to focus on managing private client portfolios.
