Brown Shipley continues Edinburgh expansion drive

Brown Shipley continues Edinburgh expansion drive

Brown Shipley has continued its expansion drive in Edinburgh with two senior hires.

Rhona McColl joins as business development manager while wealth planner Andy Bolden has relocated from Brown Shipley’s Nottingham office.

McColl, whose previous roles include senior investment sales manager at Legal & General, will be responsible for promoting the Edinburgh office and its wealth management services across Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Bolden joined Brown Shipley in 2015 following the acquisition of Hampton Dean, a Nottingham-based chartered independent firm of financial planners, where he had been a financial consultant since 2001.

The hires come after Brown Shipley appointed Paul Embleton, who has been with the firm since 2009, as its Edinburgh office head in April this year, after former Wealth Manager cover star Charles Fotheringham announced he would step down as part of a phased retirement.

Fotheringham is still involved at the Edinburgh office on a part-time basis, focusing on business development.

Commenting on the appointments, Embleton said: ‘Rhona will play an important role working closely with our network of intermediaries and supporting our pipeline of new business.

‘Andy’s appointment is exciting as it broadens our range of expertise and the services we can offer our clients.’
