Brown Brothers Harriman & Co names new managing partner


Brown Brothers Harriman & Co (BBH) has appointed William B Tyree (pictured), 53, as its new Managing Partner, effective 1 January, 2016.

Tyree will succeed Douglas “Digger” Donahue, the current Managing Partner, who will soon reach the customary age at which BBH Partners relinquish managerial responsibility (65). Donahue joined BBH in 1976 and has served in his current role since 2008. He will remain one of the Firm's General Partners.

Tyree joined BBH in 1985, and was named a Partner in 2001. Over the course of his career at BBH, Tyree has held various positions within the Firm. He currently serves as Head of the Firm's Investor Services Business, a position he has held for the last eight years. Immediately prior to this, Tyree ran the Firm’s Treasury and Markets Division after beginning his career as a corporate lending officer in the Firm's Banking Business. Today, he Chairs the Firm’s Investor Services Oversight Committee, and is a member of both the BBH Executive and Finance Committees.

"When I started my career with BBH 30 years ago, I never imagined I would have the privilege of one day leading this special institution,” says Tyree. "BBH continues to prove we are a Firm that adapts to change and thrives no matter the business climate and even through the most challenging of times. It’s what we've been doing for nearly 200 years. I'm honoured to succeed Digger who has so capably led the Firm these last eight years, and I'm likewise excited to guide BBH into the future."

Tyree graduated from Dartmouth College and received his MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
