WH Ireland has poached Cenkos Securities equity analyst Ian Berry for its corporate broking division.
Company chief executive Richard Killingbeck (pictured) said: ‘I’m delighted to welcome Ian to WH Ireland’s London office.
‘Ian has tremendous experience and a strong reputation. This appointment complements the existing team and enhances the corporate broking division’s capacity to attract additional clients.’
After a number of extremely lean years, the corporate broking industry has come to life in the last six months with a number of high-profile initial public offerings.
WH Ireland described the appointment as a ‘senior hire’. Berry has more than 25 years of experience in the sector and previously worked at Evolution, specialising in small and mid-cap research.
