Smith & Williamson has confirmed former Towry Group chief executive Andrew Fisher has been appointed a non-executive director.
Fisher, who was also chief executive of Coutts, succeeds Bob Bogart, who resigned last year. His appointment is effective immediately.
Smith & Williamson refused to comment on his appointment when contacted by Money Marketing at the start of the month.
However, today Smith & Williamson chairman Andrew Sykes said in a statement that they look forward to using Fisher’s knowledge and expertise to deliver on their growth strategy.
“With a career spanning 30 years in the financial services sector, Andrew has a distinguished record of leadership and governance roles in a range of investment management and financial services businesses,” Sykes said.
The company is currently undertaking significant work to upgrade its platform in preparation for a listing in the second half of 2019.
Fisher has also been a non-executive director of private bank C Hoare & Co.
