Gerry Maguire has been appointed lending client director.
Mr Maguire has more than 30 years’ experience and will focus on growing Brown Shipley’s lending book as well as using his expertise to support existing clients.
The appointment was described as part of the business’ wider strategy to expand its credit team, as it looks to hire additional experts across the UK to further strengthen its lending offering.
Mr Maguire joined after a 13-year stint at Adam & Company where he was most recently a relationship management director responsible for growth in client assets and liabilities and business development.
Prior to this he was a private banking manager at Allied Irish Bank for a number of years, as well as holding a number of positions at Lloyds Bank.
He is also a regulated mortgage adviser and member of the CISI.
Richard Stubbs, head of lending at Brown Shipley, said: “We are delighted to welcome Gerry.
“With several decades of experience, I am confident that he will prove integral to both the London team and our business more broadly as we look to grow our lending book and further bolster our credit offering.”
Mr Maguire added: “I am pleased to be joining Brown Shipley at a time of exciting growth for the business and look forward to working with the team to continue to provide a bespoke wealth management service to clients.”
The firm says the latest appointment followed a number of “strategic hires across the fully integrated business since the start of the year”.
These have included Sandra Dailidyte, client senior manager in the Edinburgh office and Cyrique Bourbon, asset allocation strategist in the London office.
Brown Shipley also announced the appointment of Rory Tapner as new chair of the board of directors last month.
