Nathan Valbonesi joins as a Paraplanner and has 18 years of financial services expertise.
Jeneta Pearce-Hunt joins as a People Manager responsible for the bank’s PR policy and people strategy. She has 15 years’ experience in the public sector as a teacher before joining the private sector in 2000, progressing through a number of senior International and global Human Resources roles.
Lisa Wright also joins the HR team as Talent Executive and will be responsible for all aspects of recruitment.  Lisa has over 15 years of HR experience.
Weatherbys Private Bank’s Scottish office has signed a lease for a building double the size and recently announced the appointment of businesswoman Jacqui Low to its Advisory Board. Jacqui has over 30 years’ experience in roles across business, communications, media and politics, including her role as Scotland’s first ever female Special Adviser. She was recently appointed as the chairman of Partick Thistle FC.
Quentin Marshall, Head of Weatherbys Private Bank said:
“I am delighted to welcome Aidan to the team.  He will be responsible for building a book of clients focused on banking, credit and investing, as well as bringing his wider experience to help run and grow the overall Private Banking offering.   His excellent credentials further enhance our ability to deliver excellence which will benefit both our clients and the business.

“Because Weatherbys is an independent bank it can choose to take a conservative approach to its balance sheet.  Weatherbys not only came through the 2008 crisis unscathed, but it has thrived as a result of attracting clients who value a sensibly conservative and cautious approach to banking. 

“Free from corporate constraints this approach to banking is paying dividends.  Last year we reported pre-tax profits of £5.7m and total assets of the group increased by 20% to £759m, representing a continuation of the sustained growth which has seen assets double since 2013.
“Lending has grown by 160% in the last five years and at 21% per annum since 2010 and our
 loan-to-deposit ratio stands  at 55%.”
Commenting on his appointment, Aidan Faik added:

“I believe that people do business with companies whose values reflect their own.  It’s the same reason I am incredibly excited to be joining Weatherbys Private Bank who continues to deliver on its sustainable growth and forward looking track record. Clients are treated as individuals and can expect a service that is responsive, reliable, flexible and straightforward.”
