  • Hugh Mullan joined as a Non-Executive Director in 2015
  • His appointment is in succession to the late Nigel Pilkington

Multrees, the support services partner for wealth management and private investment offices, today announces the appointment of Hugh Mullan as Chairman. Mr Mullan had been acting as interim-Chairman since Nigel Pilkington’s death in January.

Mr Mullan said: “I’ve had the good fortune of being part of Multrees’ growth story for a number of years and have seen first-hand how it has become a quality outsource provider with a growing client base. As Chairman, I look forward to continuing Nigel’s remarkable legacy of leadership and stewardship which has served this business so well.”

Prior to joining Multrees, Hugh was the UK CEO at Fidelity Worldwide Investment. He has extensive experience managing investment and retail savings businesses, having held senior positions at Barclays Wealth, Schroders and Citibank.

Whilst at Fidelity, Hugh was also a member of the company’s Global Operating Committee and, prior to his UK CEO role, as COO he managed customer services, operations, technology and fund accounting across all of Fidelity’s European businesses.

Chris Fisher, CEO of Multrees said: “The Board and I are delighted to have Hugh as our new Chairman. Hugh joined us in 2015 as a Non-Executive Director and has played an integral part in the success of the business. He brings a wealth of industry expertise and insight which benefits us and our clients. Hugh’s appointment is befitting of his predecessor Nigel, who was instrumental in helping our start-up business become the strong organisation it is today.”

Multrees is pleased to announce that we have been shortlisted in three categories for the WealthBriefing European Awards 2018. The categories in which we have been shortlisted are:

  • Client reporting
  • Outsourcing solution
  • Global custodian to private client businesses

Showcasing ‘best of breed’ providers in the global private banking, wealth management and trusted adviser communities, the awards were designed to recognise companies, teams and individuals which the prestigious panel of judges deemed to have ‘demonstrated innovation and excellence during 2017’.

Winners will be announced at a gala awards dinner, which will be held in London on 26 April at The Guildhall.

It is with great sadness and regret that we announce the death of our friend and Chairman, Nigel Pilkington, who passed away on Sunday night after a long battle with cancer.

Since our establishment in 2010, Nigel was instrumental in helping our start-up business become the strong organisation it is today. He will be sorely missed by those who had the pleasure of knowing and working with him.

Despite this terrible loss, my colleagues and I are very grateful to have the privilege of continuing his remarkable legacy.

Hugh Mullan, a Non-Executive Director since 2015, will succeed Nigel as interim Chairman with immediate effect. Hugh’s previous roles include UK CEO for Fidelity Worldwide Investment and senior positions at Barclays Wealth, Schroders and Citibank. We are delighted that he has accepted the position.

Please send any messages of condolence to Nigel’s family c/o Multrees, 33 Castle Street, Edinburgh, EH2 3DN.

Chris Fisher

CEO Multrees
