Brindley is a former Managing Director of Metro Bank and NatWest (North of England and Scotland) and was Chair of GreaterSportManchester for 10 years.
He is also a Non-Executive Director to the Rugby Football League and Chair of Olympic champion Rebecca Adlington’s SwimStars’ parent company Sporting House. He was recognised in 2017 by the Institute of Directors as the UK’s Non Executive Director of the Year.
Brindley, who last June was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List for his services to sport, said: “I look forward to working closely with the Equilibrium board as the company continues to grow. My areas of passion are leadership, culture and customer service, that’s why I’m excited to be working with a firm that has already accomplished so much in these areas.”
Colin Lawson, who founded Wilmslow-based Equilibrium more than 23 years ago, said: “Chris Brindley’s appointment as Non-Executive Director comes at a fitting time as we look to achieve our aim of becoming the largest and most trusted independently owned wealth management firm in Cheshire.”
By 2021 the £8.9m turnover business is aiming to boost its headcount to 110.
