Appointment to boost broker's high net worth team in Edinburgh

Heath Lambert has boosted its high net worth (HNW) team with the appointment of Lorna McFadzean as associate director.

McFadzean was previously head of the private client division at Marsh and joins Heath Lambert's Edinburgh office this month.

Richard Northcott, managing director of the Art, Jewellery and Private Client division at Heath Lambert, said: “Lorna’s appointment is very significant and we welcome her to the team.

"She is a well known expert in the private client market in Scotland and brings with her a wealth of experience and knowledge of the complex insurance needs of the high net worth sector, which will help us to build on our presence in the area."

He added: “With these appointments we have delivered on our strategy to extend the reach of our team into our network of regional offices.

We believe that our high net worth proposition complements the Group’s general commercial insurance offering so it made sense for us to have our experts sitting with members of our regional teams. We look forward to continuing to build on our regional strength during 2009.”
