WH Ireland names new finance director

Wealth management firm WH Ireland has appointed Philip Tansey as its new finance director.

The appointment received the green light from the Financial Conduct Authority.

Tansey replaces Daniel Cowland, who announced plans to quit at the end of last year.

Cowland is set to join Curtis Banks as the CFO next month. He will replace Paul Tarran in the new role.

Commenting on Tansey’s appointment, WH Ireland CEO Philip Wale stated: “We are delighted that Philip has agreed to be a director of the Company.

“Philip brings a wealth of experience that will be valuable to WH Ireland as we continue on the path towards profitability.”

WH Ireland tends to individuals, corporates, trustees, funds and institutional clients, offering them investment management as well as wealth planning services.

The firm has presence in the UK and the Isle of Man.

The firm has had several senior executive departures recently.

In July 2018, its CEO Richard Killingbeck resigned in order to pursue other opportunities. He was succeeded by Wale.

At the same time, the firm’s head of wealth management Roddy Buchanan stepped down from his position.

In December last year, WH Ireland appointed Stephen Ford as the new head of its wealth management unit.
