Duncan Lawrie creates Bristol regional director role
by Emma Dunkley on Jun 25, 2012 at 11:32
Duncan Lawrie Private Bank has hired Jeff Durant as its inaugural regional director for Bristol and the South West.
Durant, who has spent 28 years in the industry, joins from Clydesdale Bank, where he was senior partner and responsible for running the Bristol team of corporate relationship managers and support staff.
Before Clydesdale, he worked at Allied Irish Bank where he ran the Bristol and South West branch, developing it into a successful private banking operation.
He had previously spent 18 years at Barclays Bank, where he had started his career.
Matthew Parden, managing director at Duncan Lawrie Private Bank, said: ‘Jeff Durant joins us at an exciting time in the growth of our Bristol operation.
‘He brings with him a wealth of experience, not only in banking but also in the local area and he will be a huge asset as we look to expand the bank’s offering and services in Bristol and the South West.’
In a separate move, the firm appointed its first woman to the UK board last week, which saw Jane Parry set a precedent for the private bank.
