Westhouse Securities appoints Mark Brown as Executive Chairman

Westhouse Securities Ltd is pleased to announce the appointment of Mark Brown as Executive Chairman, subject to regulatory approval. Brown’s appointment follows the stepping down of Garth Milne as Non-executive Chairman of Westhouse Holdings Ltd.

Christopher Getley, Chief Executive Officer for Westhouse Securities, said “The Board wishes to thank Garth for his five years of loyal service and for guiding the Company through the financial crisis to being a much more significant, substantial business.”

Mark Brown, previously Chief Executive of Collins Stewart Hawkpoint Plc., brings a wealth of experience and leadership in both small and large investment banks. Having worked as the Global Head of Research for ABN AMRO and HSBC, and as Chief Executive of ABN’s UK equities business, Brown led the successful turnaround of Arbuthnot Securities followed by Collins Stewart Hawkpoint.

Getley continues, “We are delighted to be welcoming Mark aboard. Much hard work over the last few years has gone in to building the foundations of a high-quality business. We are certain that Mark’s experience, guidance and support will enable us to fully reap the rewards and become a key player both in London and other major financial markets.”
