Johnny McGlynn has been appointed head of Brewin Dolphin in Edinburgh which is the second largest office in the group and the largest in Scotland.

He takes over from Marc Wilkinson who is now regional managing director – Scotland overseeing the Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee and Aberdeen offices as well as performing his groupwide head of wealth governance role.

Mr McGlynn joined the wealth manager in 2009 and his previous position was divisional director. Before that he was head of business development and growth.

Hal Catherwood, regional managing director – UK and Ireland, said: “This is the culmination of continued progress within the Edinburgh office and across the Scottish region.

“Johnny has helped drive our financial planning, business development and growth in new funds and client numbers. As Johnny takes over as head of office, I’d like to thank Marc for all his work and wish him continued success in his broader roles.”

Mr Wilkinson said: “Johnny has got the energy and devotion to build on what we have already achieved. I am confident he will take the team forward and make the most of the opportunities we see here.”

Mr McGlynn added: “I’m so pleased to be taking over this key leadership role at Brewin Dolphin.”

Last month CEO Robin Beer said the company is benefiting from improving market sentiment.

Total funds increased by 8% over the first quarter to a record £51.4bn (FY 2020: £47.6bn), with total discretionary funds up 8.3% to £44.6bn (FY 2020: £41.2bn), supported by strong investment performance.
