Rowan Dartington has restructured its senior team, resulting in Tim Cockerill taking over as investment director and Guy Stephens as managing director of the Signature division.
Cockerill previously held the role of head of collectives research, since joining the wealth manager in 2011. Prior to this, he was head of collectives research at Rowan & Co. Capital Management and then Ashcourt Rowan Asset Management.
Stephens joined Rowan Dartington as chief investment officer in 2011. He joined the City of London in 1990 as an investment analyst, becoming a UK equity fund manager for Refuge Assurance, now part of Royal London Asset Management.
Cockerill said: "Investment management is at the heart of Rowan Dartington and critical to the future of the business. I look forward to developing and expanding the already successful investment services we offer to existing and new clients."
Stephens said: "In the period ahead, we want to increase our reach and really rival our national competitors."
Rowan Dartington executive chairman Graham Coxell added: "2013 is proving to be yet another great year. We are continuing to expand our business and develop and support our culture of excellence. We are delighted that two of our key people have agreed to move into these very important positions in a fast moving industry. There are no better people for the two roles."
