WHIreland has promoted Roddy Buchanan to Head of the Wealth Management Division, reporting into CEO Richard Killingbeck, and appointed Rupert Yeoward, reporting to Roddy Buchanan as Deputy Head of Wealth Management.

The appointment of Buchanan and Yeoward is part of a continuing programme of significant change in the senior leadership at WHIreland. Buchanan, who was previously Deputy Head of Private Clients, takes over from Richard Killingbeck, who will focus on his role as CEO of the WHIreland Group PLC.

He will be responsible for leading and developing the private wealth regional offices in Bristol, Cardiff, Manchester, Milton Keynes and Poole. Yeoward’s role will focus on maximising the potential of the regional offices and he will work closely with other group divisions to enable WHIreland to achieve their strategic objectives.
Commenting on the news, Richard Killingbeck, Group CEO, says: “The appointments of Roddy and Rupert continues our programme of change across the division. Their extensive combined experience will be instrumental in the strengthening and development of our wealth management proposition. Working closely together, the pair will help WHIreland continue to be a forward looking, market-led wealth business, dedicated to enhancing our clients’ wealth.”
Yeoward says: “I am very pleased to be joining WHIreland at such an exciting time for the business. WHIreland has a strong heritage and I look forward to helping build upon the history of the Group as it continues to grow its wealth management business and further establish the company as a modern, dynamic and innovative wealth manager.”
The appointment of Buchanan and Yeoward comes during a period of ongoing change for WHIreland including a recent brand refresh and website relaunch, helping to create a new corporate identity for the company.
