Redmayne-Bentley hires former Walker Crips director

Redmayne-Bentley hires former Walker Crips director

Redmayne-Bentley has continued its  South East expansion push with the recruitment of a former Walker Crips director.

Stephen Thompson joins the firm’s Henley-on-Thames branch to work alongside the existing client-facing team.

Bringing financial services experience spanning five decades, Thompson’s latest role was associate director in Walker Crips’ private client division, a role he had held since 2004.

His appointment is the third to Redmayne-Bentley’s Henley office in the past month, following on from the arrival of James Carr and Lizzie Heaver from Charles Stanley.

‘Stephen joins us at a very exciting time,’ said Nick McGregor, manager of the branch. ‘We feel he is a perfect fir for the firm. Like us, Stephen believes in providing a client-focused service with the clients’ needs and objectives at the core.’

Redmayne-Bentley’s national network has had a tumultuous year, with the departure of six staff from its Leeds office in March coming just a week after the firm brought in a new head of investment management. All six went on to join boutique wealth firm Progeny.

Nevertheless, the stockbroker has been capitalising on personnel cuts at rival firms, including the hires of eight Charles Stanley alumni between April and September.
