Brewin Dolphin has appointed chief operating officer Henry Algeo as group managing director, a role that will see him heading up the group's investment management offering.
Algeo (pictured) will become group MD with immediate effect, in a role that will encompass the investment management responsibilities relinquished by David McCorkell last month.
McCorkell retired as head of investment management and as a member of the wealth manager's board on 24 October.
Algeo was responsible for business support, information communication and technology, facilities and change management in his previous board role, as well as holding the position of chief operating officer.
"We are delighted that Henry will assume the additional responsibility, he has made a significant contribution to operations since December 2011 and he has become a valuable member of the Board," said Brewin Dolphin executive chairman Jamie Matheson.
Algeo joined Brewins in February 2005 as head of its Belfast office, before joining the operating board of Brewin Dolphin Limited in 2007, and the board of Brewin Dolphin Holdings Limited in July 2010.
