Weatherbys appoints private banking industry veteran

Weatherbys Private Bank has appointed experienced and seasoned private banker, Nick Gornall, as Associate Director, to support the growth of clients and assets across the Bank.

An industry veteran and fellow of the CISI, Nick, who will be based in London, has enjoyed a longstanding career in private banking and wealth management having worked previously at Coutts and Arbuthnot Latham.

Over a 25-year period at Coutts, Nick held various managing director roles, leading its UK Regional Business, its London Entrepreneurs and its Sports & Entertainment teams. In his most recent private banking role, he was Head of Business Development at Arbuthnot Latham for four years.

Nick’s appointment comes just a month after the Bank hired two private bankers to meet the needs of its expanding client base. Anthony Rawlinson joined Weatherbys from Brewin Dolphin and Maya Lewis joined from Investec where she advised sports and entertainment clients for almost a decade.

Ollie Barnett, Director at Weatherbys Private Bank, said: “It is an exciting time of growth for our Bank. We hired 89 new staff last year and we have already made some key appointments this year. We are delighted to welcome Nick to the team – his experience, energy and passion for private banking and client relationships are a real asset.”

The private bank, which is part of the Weatherbys family-owned business founded in 1770, continues to meet the challenges of a changing world, including investing in its digital capabilities and its Creating The Future initiative to ensure a better place for families and future generations.
