Fairbairn Private Bank has appointed Craig Blenkinsop and Steve Fox to its board of directors.
Blenkinsop, a Fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, is based in the bank’s Isle of Man office and is currently head of operations and finance. He has been with Fairbairn Private Bank for over seven years and prior to this he held a number of senior finance roles in the life assurance sector.
Fox joined Fairbairn Private Bank in 2002 from SG Hambros and is currently head of the Jersey office and head of treasury. He has over 27 years’ experience in the finance industry, primarily in the treasury environment.
Greg Horton, managing director of Fairbairn Private Bank, commented: “I am delighted to welcome Craig and Steve to the bank’s board. Craig’s extensive financial experience and Steve’s asset and liability management skills will provide invaluable strength to the bank’s strategic team through these challenging economic times. Their comprehensive market knowledge will help position the bank for further growth and innovation in the future.”
Fairbairn Private Bank has initiated a number of changes following the departure of former head of private banking, David Stearn and his team, who left in October 2011 to set up their own venture, Affinity Private Wealth.
This includes hiring Rob Currie who replaced Stearn as head of private banking and Mark Lambert as senior business developer.
