UK private bank and wealth manager Kleinwort Hambros has appointed new heads for two of its offices. This closely follows the announcement of a new CEO for their Channel Islands business in Christophe Huchet.
Kleinwort Hambros has now appointed Richard Brown as head of its Yorkshire office, where he will focus on coordinating the business’ range of banking and wealth management offerings for high-net-worth individuals (HNWIs) in the Yorkshire area.
Brown joined Kleinwort Hambros in 2015 and boasts more than 30 years’ experience in the private banking sector, having previously worked at Lloyds Private Banking and Coutts.
Meanwhile, in East Anglia, Mark Sinclair has been named as head of the bank’s Cambridge office.
A member of Kleinwort Hambros’ team in Cambridge since 2016, Sinclair also possesses over three decades’ experience in private banking, and was formerly a director at HSBC.
Of the appointments, Andrew Hillery, Kleinwort Hambros’ head of UK private banking, commented: “As we continue to strengthen our business, we are committed to delivering a market-leading service to our clients, close to their home or place of work.
“With [their] strong track record and experience in the private banking industry, we are confident that [they] will help drive our business forward. It also demonstrates our recognition and support for promoting internal talent.”
Kleinwort Hambros represents Société Générale’s private banking and wealth management division in the UK, employing over 1000 staff across a number of offices in Britain, as well as Guernsey, Jersey and Gibraltar.
The business possesses £16bn in assets under management, and last year was a double-winner at the Private Banking & Wealth Management Awards in London, taking home the Outstanding Private Bank prizes for the Crown Dependencies and International Clients.
