Divers was senior investment director and head of office for the Midlands at Brooks, where he worked 10 years.
He has 19 years experience in the industry and joins Tilney’s Birmingham office.
Tilney head of Midlands investment management Adam Parker said Divers was “well respected within both the investment management and intermediary community”.
Tilney is looking to strengthen its presence in the Midlands, Parker said.
In February, Tilney appointed Chris Moore as an associate investment director in Birmingham.
Moore joined from Smith & Williamson, which Tilney is now in the process of merging with to create a £45bn wealth manager.
