Weatherbys Private Bank continues its ambitious growth plan to grow its business in Scotland with the appointment of Douglas Noble as Senior Adviser.

Douglas is one of the most qualified private bankers in the industry having over 40 years’ experience. A lawyer by training, Douglas spent a large part of his career with Bank of Scotland where he was responsible for launching its first private banking operation.  Following the creation of HBOS, Douglas was responsible for implementing the existing private banking model he created within BoS across the enlarged HBOS Group. After 25 years he left to join Adam & Co where he successfully launched its private banking office in Aberdeen. Other roles include building Barclays Wealth’s Private Banking operation in Scotland, which he headed, and most recently working at Brown Shipley to develop their Private Banking operation in Scotland, with a particular focus on Lending and building lending teams in each of the five Brown Shipley offices.

Roger Weatherby, Chief Executive, Weatherbys Private Bank said: “Douglas’ appointment sends a strong signal about our serious intentions to develop and grow our business in Scotland. Weatherbys Private Bank is seeking strong growth which could see its client base, profits and loan book double over the next five years and expects these new clients will come from a broad range of backgrounds and careers.”
