Deutsche Bank Private Wealth Management's head of UK financial intermediaries David Gurr is to retire, and will be replaced by Miles Robinson, head of the firm's Birmingham office.

Gurr plans to retire by the end of the year and will work closely with his successor Robinson over the next month to ensure a smooth transition. Gurr has enjoyed a long career at the organisation having joined Tilney in 1999 as head of intermediary sales. Tilney was taken over by Deutsche in 2006, at which point Gurr was appointed managing head of financial intermediaries.

Robinson will take on Gurr's responsibilities and continue to head up Deutsche's Birmingham office.

Prior to Tilney, Gurr worked at Old Mutual International and Axa Equity & Law.
