Charles Stanley is breathing new life into its regional network as a number of office heads step down to allow others to lead the next stage of growth for the business.
Director Chris Harris-Deans has stepped down as head of Exeter, the biggest branch in Charles Stanley’s regional network. He will be replaced by Exeter-born Philip Greenman.
Harris-Deans, who headed the branch when it was shortlisted for the Citywire Wealth Manager’s Regional Stars 2013 Awards, has a new role overseeing the development of the 33-strong branch network, with group director Gary Teper.
In Guildford ex-Wealth Manager cover star Charles Turton (pictured) becomes branch manager, replacing Gavin Brackenridge, who retires shortly.
Christopher Morgan is stepping down as head of the Bath branch, with Simon Jacobs, an investment manager, taking on his responsibilities.
After 15 years at Charles Stanley, Milton Keynes office head Michael MacDougall has stepped down ahead of his retirement in March next year. He is replaced by Paul Wilson.
Elsewhere in the country, former Wealth Manager cover star Jon Curtis is leaving his role as head of the Eastbourne office to head Charles Stanley’s Tunbridge Wells branch, replacing Christopher Corfield who has stepped down ahead of retirement early next year.
Meanwhile, James Smith takes over as head of Eastbourne, having joined the branch in 2011 as an investment manager.
Glen Avis has been promoted to branch head at Ipswich, taking over from Mark Marshall who steps back from the role but remains in the office.
Similarly in Norwich, Mark Hinds takes over from Willie Brownlow, who also remains on the team. Brownlow has been at Charles Stanley since 1984 and set up the firm’s Norwich office in 1985.
