The firm said its Edinburgh team had also been strengthened with the hire of Suzanne Marshall, who joined as an account executive last month. Marshall will report into Alan Douglas, branch director.

Brophy said: “I am pleased to have joined such a well-respected business at a time of growth in Scotland. I look forward to understanding the needs of our clients and prospects during this difficult time. I have already been impressed with the attitude, knowledge, and expertise of my new colleagues and look forward to working more closely with them.”

Ben Bailey, chief executive Scotland and Northern Ireland, added: “In spite of the current business pressures, I am very conscious that many of our clients are grappling with the effects of the current pandemic and so it is important we continue investing in high quality people who can provide even more support during this uncertain period.”

The firm has been “proactively” helping businesses in all sectors amid the crisis.
