Change in leadership at Brooks Macdonald as Jackson resigns
Brooks Macdonald, the London-based, AIM-listed investment management group, has made changes in their board and senior leadership.
This is due to the backdrop of a fast changing external environment and is in line with the business priorities and investment plans previously set out.
After 17 years at Brooks Macdonald, Simon Jackson, group finance director, pictured left, has decided to step down from the board and will leave the group in April 2018.
Jackson has been a key member of the leadership team and has played a valuable role in the success achieved during that time. A process to identify his successor is underway and an announcement will be made in due course. He will remain an active member of the leadership team until April and will assist in the handover of his responsibilities.
Andrew Shepherd has been appointed as managing director, Distribution, as well as continuing as group deputy chief executive officer, effective 1 February 2018.
Brooks Macdonald has also appointed Jason Wood as chief operating officer. Wood joins after 21 years at Schroders plc and brings extensive experience in operations, technology and change.
Wood will lead enhancements to our technology strategy and operational framework, to deliver improved effectiveness and efficiency, as we build a stronger platform for sustainable growth.
