WH Ireland hires COO from Brewin Dolphin

WH Ireland hires COO from Brewin Dolphin

WH Ireland has appointed Brewin Dolphin chief of staff Paul Jones as its new chief operating officer.

Jones will join the firm’s executive committee and be responsible for all aspects of WH Ireland’s outsourced relationships and for the middle office and IT function.

He will report to WH Ireland’s CEO Richard Killingbeck (pictured).

Jones spent five years at Brewin Dolphin, where he held several roles including head of transformation, director of change and transformation, regional director, and chief of staff.

Before Brewin, Jones had head of strategy roles at Skandia, Axa Wealth and Bluefin Wealth Management.

His appointment follows a period of transition for WH Ireland, including the recently announced appointment of Mike Ingram from BGC Partners as chief market strategist to provide market and political commentary.  

Commenting on the appointment, Killingbeck said: ‘We are delighted to welcome Paul, who joins us with extensive experience in operations and distribution across major wealth management firms.

‘This experience will help further transition the company in achieving its ambition of becoming a leading, advice driven financial services company.

‘His appointment coincides with strong growth across both divisions and as both prepare for ambitious further growth plans. Paul will bring discipline and rigour to the operational side of the business.’

On his new role, Jones added: ‘The business has undergone a significant transformation in the last few years, under the leadership of Richard Killingbeck and I am glad to be able to bring my experience to help prepare the company for the next phase of growth.’
