British wealth manager Brewin Dolphin has expanded its sustainability team with the appointments of Tom Blathwayt and Kelly Eva.
Blathwayt has been named as the head of sustainability. Eva will serve as sustainability manager.
Blathwayt will spearhead the sustainability team, which is tasked with managing the implementation of the firm’s sustainability approach.
This involves heading the firm’s corporate responsibility initiatives, supporting ESG strategy and responsible investment propositions, and shaping stewardship activities.
He previously had stints at strategy consultancy Monitor, innovation foundation Nesta managing early stage investments and spinouts, and at Walking Ventures VC.
Eva was earlier Brewin Dolphin’s investment manager in the charity team.
She formerly worked at Lloyds Banking Group.
Brewin Dolphin group people and sustainability director Richard Buxton noted: “We are thrilled with the appointments of Tom and Kelly, who together will lead the charge to develop our sustainability proposition further.
“They both bring a host of relevant skills and strong experience to their roles, combining Kelly’s in-depth knowledge of wealth management with Tom’s global sustainability expertise. I look forward to seeing how they will further shape and implement our vision for sustainability.”
Earlier this year, the firm named Eddie Clarke as the new CEO of its Ireland business.
