Investec Wealth & Investment (IW&I) has appointed Dr Tim May to the IW&I Board, as a non-executive director and a member of the remuneration and audit committees.
The move marks a return to Investec for Dr May, who held a number of senior positions in IW&I between 1987 to 2002, when it was branded Sheppards and subsequently Carr Sheppards Crosthwaite, as well as in the wider Investec Group.
Dr May has commercial, governance and regulatory experience from working in the wealth management industry for a number of years.
His previous roles include chief executive of the Wealth Management Association, chairman of Euroclear UK and Ireland (formerly CrestCo), chief executive of CrestCo and chief operating officer of Gerrard.
Dr Tim May says it is an important time to be joining the IW&I Board.
"IW&I has built a leading position in the industry during a period of significant change. I have no doubt that the firm will capitalise on the opportunities ahead and I am looking forward to playing a part in its continued success story," he adds.
