Brewin Dolphin appoints COO

Brewin Dolphin appointed Grant Parkinson as chief operating officer. Parkinson will join Brewin Dolphin from Coutts, the private bank, where he will have spent five years. He will take up the position in August, joining Brewin’s executive committee and reporting directly to David Nicol, CEO.

“We are extremely pleased to be hiring a person of Grant’s calibre to this vitally important position,” said Nicol. “He has outstanding and relevant commercial experience at both Coutts and before that at Barclays Wealth. He joins at a crucial moment in Brewin’s development where the firm is on a clear growth trajectory, and it is more important than ever to have a seasoned executive in this role.”

New Zealand-born, Parkinson worked for a total of ten years at McKinsey & Company and Barclays Wealth before joining Coutts as executive director in July 2012. In June 2013, he was promoted to the role of chief operating officer. Parkinson was also chairman of RBS Asset Management Holdings and a board member of RBS Services (Switzerland).

The appointment is the result of a thorough selection process following the departure of Thomas Lack earlier this year. In this role, Parkinson will oversee the company’s operations departments including business support, change delivery, dealing, information technology, premises and facilities management.
