NEW APPOINTMENT

Weatherbys Private Bank




WEATHERBYS BANKING GROUP APPOINTS GENERAL COUNSEL

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Fiona Noonan as General Counsel.  Fiona has over 25 years’ experience as a legal and regulatory counsel working both in private practice and for the wealth and asset management arms of  investment banks.  Fiona brings considerable structuring, transactional and execution experience to the Weatherby’s senior management team.
 
Fiona will report to Andrew Turberville-Smith, Group Finance Director.  Her role will encompass our private banking, racing banking and asset finance activities.  Most recently Fiona worked at Allen & Overy’s global platform Peerpoint, where she advised on the legal and regulatory implication of Brexit for JP Morgan Private Bank.  She has held other key roles in wealth management at Morgan Stanley and leveraged finance execution at Goldman Sachs.

Commenting on Fiona’s appointment, Roger Weatherby, Chief Executive Officer, said:

“I am delighted that Fiona has agreed to join us. Her arrival reinforces our commitment to delivering an exceptional client experience as the Banking Group continues to grow.  Not only will we benefit from her outstanding legal expertise but we will also be able to draw upon her deep industry knowledge of financial services and banking.
 
“Now in our 250th year, it is our priority, as always, to do all we can to help our clients, particularly in these increasingly difficult circumstances.  If we work together to offer that support, then when we eventually emerge from this difficult period, it will make the global recovery process quicker and less damaging.“
 

Commenting on her appointment, Fiona added:

“I am incredibly excited to be joining the Group, I believe that people do business with companies whose values reflect their own and it’s the same reason I’ve accepted Weatherbys’ invitation to join the business. Their culture of trust, integrity and transparency where service actually means something resonates with me. They aspire to grow without compromising any of that and I am very happy to play a role in achieving their goals.”
