COUTTS APPOINTS SARAH WYSE AS HEAD OF MARKETING AND UK BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT London - Coutts today announces the appointment of Sarah Wyse as Managing Director, Head of Marketing and UK Business Development, effective immediately. In this newly-created role, Sarah will be based in London and will have a dual reporting line to Michael Morley, Chief Executive, Coutts & Co and to Ian Ewart, Head of Products, Services & Marketing.
Coutts has significantly transformed its UK business over the last year. The firm restructured its client-facing team in 2012, introducing the role of the Coutts Wealth Manager to work alongside private bankers and other specialists. Coutts launched its RDR-compliant proposition six months ago - well in advance of the implementation of the new regulatory regime. With these changes now well-embedded in the business, Coutts is well-positioned for continued growth and to realise untapped opportunities amongst both new and existing clients. To support UK business development, Sarah will focus on building net new business through best-in-class collaborations with prospects, intermediaries and RBS Group.
Michael Morley, Chief Executive of Coutts & Co. said: “We are excited that Sarah has accepted this new role at Coutts. She brings a breadth of knowledge to the firm and her appointment underscores the importance of aligning marketing and business development. I have every confidence that her appointment will assist us in delivering our ambitious growth plans.”
Sarah’s marketing remit will be to direct all activity worldwide to ensure Coutts’ business strategy is closely aligned with marketing to enable it to be most effective. Sarah joined Coutts two years ago as a consultant, leading on the project to establish a single contemporary brand for the firm. She previously worked for WPP, running and developing a multitude of agency businesses for the worldwide group.
