Wealth management group Kingswood Holdings has appointed Rob Suss, currently Co-Chief Executive Officer of UK Agricultural Finance and Co-Founder of Global Tower Solutions, as a Non-Executive Director with immediate effect. 

Suss will advise Kingswood on their global wealth management strategy, working with senior management to structure and deliver a best in class client proposition.

Suss retired from his position as a Managing Director of Goldman Sachs where he spent 18 years building and turning around a number of businesses in their Investment Management Division. His last role was as Head of Private Wealth Management in London from 2012 to 2015. Prior to this, Suss was the Head of UK and Ireland Private Wealth Management from 2008 to 2012 when his unit received the prestigious Euromoney peer voted award for Ultra High Net Worth Services for three consecutive years (2009 to 2011). From 2006 to 2008, Suss served as the Head of Wealth Management Solutions.
Suss is deeply involved with a number of philanthropic organisations, serving as Deputy Chair of the Trust of the Royal Academy of the Arts and is also a trustee of JK Rowling’s charitable endeavour Lumos.
Suss is the co-founder of Global Tower Solutions, a company focused on delivering renewable solutions globally. He currently co-heads UK Agricultural Finance; a specialist lender serving the agricultural community and chairs the Advisory Board for EG Capital as an Emerging Market Debt Manager. He also serves as a director for TPG Pace Holdings and B Riley Principal Merger Corp.
Gary Wilder, Group CEO, says: “With the Group’s recent US partnership announcement, and ongoing discussions regarding an Asian initiative, we are actively progressing our strategy of building an internationally recognised wealth and investment management firm. Rob’s appointment will be a major asset to Kingswood as we enhance our domestic and global platform.”
Buzz West, Chairman, says: “We’re delighted to welcome Rob to Kingswood at such a pivotal time in our development. He has considerable experience and insight of the wealth management industry and we believe he will play a crucial role as we roll-out our global wealth strategy and enhance our credibility in the market. The Board looks forward to working with him.”
