UK wealth management group Kingswood Holdings has appointed former Goldman Sachs managing director, Rob Suss, to its board as a non-executive director.
Suss spent 18 years at Goldman Sachs, most recently serving as head of private wealth management in London between 2012 and 2015.
He had previously spent four years as Goldman Sachs head of UK and Ireland private wealth management, overseeing a unit which won the Euromoney award for ultra-high-net-worth services three years running in 2009-2011.
Since retiring from Goldman Sachs, Suss has founded renewable energy investor, Global Tower Solutions and chairs the advisory board for EG Capital as an emerging market debt manager.
He also serves as deputy chair of the trust of the Royal Academy of Arts and is trustee of Lumos, the charitable endeavour of Harry Potter author, JK Rowling.
Kingswood Group CEO, Gary Wilder, says: “With the group’s recent US partnership announcement, and ongoing discussions regarding an Asian initiative, we are actively progressing our strategy of building an internationally recognised wealth and investment management firm.
“Rob’s appointment will be a major asset to Kingswood as we enhance our domestic and global platform.”
Chairman Buzz West adds: “Rob has considerable experience and insight of the wealth management industry and we believe he will play a crucial role as we roll-out our global wealth strategy and enhance our credibility in the market.”
