Brewin Dolphin has ended its search for a finance director with the appointment of Evolution’s Andrew Westenberger.
Westenberger takes the reins from Robin Bayford, who is retiring at the start of next year.
Westenberger served as group finance director at Evolution from 2009 to August 2011 and was also a director of its Williams de Broe subsidiary.
He qualified as chartered accountant with Coopers & Lybrand. From 2000 to 2008 held various senior finance roles in London and New York with Barclays Capital.
His appointment comes a day after Brewins, headed by Jamie Matheson (pictured), posted a 3.3% rise in profitability and warned regulation could continue to have a material impact on its earnings.
