Following the creation of HBOS, Noble was responsible for implementing the existing private banking model he created within Bank of Scotland across the enlarged group. After 25 years with the bank, he left to join Adam & Co where he 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.
Roger Weatherby, head of Weatherbys Private Bank, said: “Douglas’ appointment sends a strong signal about our serious intentions to grow our business in Scotland.”
