Coutts' Townsend to lead Rowan Dartington's Exeter office

Coutts' Townsend to lead Rowan Dartington's Exeter office

Mike Townsend will lead Rowan Dartington's new Exeter office.

Townsend has joined the firm from private bank Coutts and brings with him more than 35 years experience across all aspects of wealth management.  This includes trusts and estates, financial planning, investments and private banking.

Graham Coxell (pictured), executive chair of Rowan Dartington, said the opening of the Exeter branch is another significant step forward after two years of sustained growth.

'This move gives us additional local exposure in the South of England, adding to our existing regional offices as we continue to look for opportunities to expand our network,' he added. 

'Mike already has a strong network of contacts around Exeter and the South West, developed through excellent interpersonal skills and local knowledge, and we look forward to working with him.'
