WH Ireland's former chief executive Laurie Beevers has resurfaced, joining a buyout team which has purchased WH Ireland Colwyn Bay office.
According to reports in Manchester where the firm, led by Richard Ford (pictured), is based, Beevers has joined forces with Paul Weston, a regional director from WH Ireland, to buy the Colwyn Bay operation for an undisclosed sum.
Beevers and David Youngman took control of WH Ireland in 1995 and were suspended in April of this year after the merger talks between Blue Oar and WH Ireland - which looked set to go ahead - collapsed at the last minute.
The duo officially left in May of this year. It is understood the duo fell out with management after they indicated they would vote against the re-election of WH Ireland chief executive Richard Ford (pictured) and chairman Rupert Lowe.
More recently WH Ireland poached a team of financial planners from Allied Irish Banks (AIB) and named Lindsey Hamilton as the head of its newly integrated private wealth management division.
