Andrew Kyle named CFO of Brown Shipley

London; 13 September 2023: Brown Shipley, a Quintet Private Bank, announced today the appointment of Andrew Kyle as Chief Financial Officer, subject to regulatory approval. Kyle, who served as CFO of Coutts for the previous five years, will join Brown Shipley in October 2023 as CFO designate, working alongside the firm’s outgoing CFO, Andrew Curran, who will retire in March 2024 after serving at the UK private bank for over 20 years.

Kyle, who will serve as a member of the Brown Shipley Executive Committee led by CEO Calum Brewster, will bring more than two decades of experience to the firm founded in 1810 and operating in eight cities across the UK. He will work closely with the management of both Brown Shipley and Quintet Private Bank, the firm’s Luxembourg-headquartered parent, including as a member of the Group CFO leadership team.

A finance professional who served at the NatWest Group and its predecessors for over 15 years, Kyle was Finance Director at Coutts from 2019 until earlier this year. He has significant experience in balance-sheet optimisation, regulatory affairs and organisational leadership. A graduate of the University of Salford, where he earned his BSC in Accounting & Finance, he also holds a Diploma in Treasury Management and is a member of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants.

“Andrew Curran has made an important contribution to Brown Shipley’s sustained growth for more than 20 years,” said Brewster. “We are profoundly grateful for his service, including his commitment to the business over the next six months as he partners with Andrew Kyle to seamlessly transfer Finance responsibilities.

“Andrew Kyle, in turn, possesses a deep level of expertise that will help us realise Brown Shipley’s significant commercial ambitions. Combined with his understanding of how to excel in the UK private banking sector and track record of achievement, he will build upon the great work of Andrew Curran and our highly dedicated Finance team to support the next stage of our long-term growth,” Brewster said.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to put my skills and experience to work at Brown Shipley, a dynamic wealth manager that has expanded its reach over the last decade while further sharpening its client-focused vision,” said Kyle. “I am eager to get to know my new colleagues here in the UK and across Quintet’s European footprint. In particular, I look forward to working shoulder to shoulder with Andrew Curran over the upcoming transition period.”

“I am proud of all that we have achieved at Brown Shipley over the last two decades,” Curran concluded. “The business has evolved significantly in that time and as I prepare to pass the Finance baton to Andrew Kyle, who brings great experience and ability to the role, I have no doubt that Brown Shipley will continue to grow and thrive.”
