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.
