Gilson Gray Financial Management (GGFM) has promoted Emma Bradbury to chief operating officer.

Ms Bradbury has been with the firm since it was first set up 10 years ago and has held several roles during that time supporting its expansion, including her most recent position as operations director. As COO, she will drive the next chapter of GGFM’s growth, taking over from Steve Herkes who retires as managing director.

The leadership announcement comes as GGFM reveals it is targeting upwards of £1 billion assets under management for the financial year. Several key acquisitions are already lined up to boost the firm’s client base and headcount.

Glen Gilson, chair of Gilson Gray Financial Management, said: “Emma has been at the centre of GGFM’s development in recent years and as COO will be a great asset to the team as we move forward.

“We have ambitious plans for the year ahead, and Emma will be responsible for the operational delivery of the growth strategy and achieving the targets we have set for 2024.

“Steve Herkes retires with our best wishes and thanks for his dedication to the firm.”

Ms Bradbury said: “Having been with GGFM since day one, this is a natural next step in my progression with the firm and I’m excited to take on this leadership role, working closely with Glen as chair and Alastair Fiddes as CFO.

“In recent years I have increasingly been part of the strategic decision-making process, so it is great to formalise that and play a key part in the future growth strategy.”
