Old Mill has appointed Amanda Browning as partner, head of wealth management.
She has joined from Evelyn Partners, formerly Tilney and Smith & Williamson, where she oversaw the integration of the wealth management teams following the merger that formed the company as it is now.
The south west England focused firm is aiming for “ambitious collaborative growth,” and Browning will be tasked with helping to drive this.
She began her career as a cashier at Lloyds 25 years ago and has held senior roles at Coutts and Rathbones Group, before joining Smith and Williamson as a director in 2019. She is a CISI fellow chartered wealth manager and CII fellow chartered financial planner.
Browning said: “I believe I have a lot to offer in terms of helping increase collaboration across the business to enhance Old Mill’s holistic service. I am also a real supporter of the ‘recruit, retain and promote’ strategy and feel I am in a position to take that on a level to help my planners grow and develop.”
CEO Kevin Whitmarsh added: “Since the restructure, where we brought all aspects of the business together into one multi-service advisory firm, and announced our ambitious growth plans, the business has gone from strength to strength. But if we are to achieve our goals, we need to continue to bring in the very best talent.
“Amanda is not only a very accomplished and experienced candidate but is also someone that shares our vision for Old Mill, and she will be a huge asset as we push forward with our ambitious plans.”
