John Hall, CEO of Brewin Dolphin, will step down on September 30 after 20 years at the helm.
He will retire from the board of Brewin Dolphin Holdings at the group’s 2008 Annual General Meeting.
Jamie Matheson, executive chairman, says: “John Hall’s contribution to Brewin Dolphin has been remarkable. The fact that the company has gone from strength to strength whilst maintaining its core traditional values is due to his vision, integrity and leadership. These traditional values will be maintained by a strong and effective team committed to the continuing success of the company.”
From October 2007 the Matheson will have five direct reports from the chief operating officer, finance director, head of private clients, head of regulation and head of investment banking.
Sarah Soar (head of the Southern Region) and Barry Howard (head of Regulation) are appointed executive directors of the Brewin Dolphin Holdings PLC Board.
Meanwhile, Christopher Legge will hand over the role of head of private clients to David McCorkell. Legge remains an executive director of the company and will continue his close involvement with the development of the Group Fund Management operation and his own private client base.
