St. James’s Place (SJP) co-founder and life president Mike Wilson has joined the board of RIT Capital Partners as a non-executive director.
Wilson, who was chief executive of SJP from its launch in 1992 to 2004 and then chairman until 2011, will also serve on the trust’s remuneration committee. Prior to founding SJP he was a board member at Allied Dunbar and BAT Industries.
He replaces James Leigh-Pemberton who stepped down from the board following his appointment as chief executive of UK Financial Investments.
RIT chairman Lord Rothschild (pictured) said: ‘I am delighted that Mike Wilson is joining the board. Our relationship goes back to the founding of St James’s Place Capital many years ago.
‘I would also like to thank James Leigh-Pemberton for his many years of service to RIT, during which he has made an immense contribution to the company. We wish him every success in his new role.’
