Capital Cranfield has hired Lukshmi Selvarajah as a professional trustee.
Selvarajah will be based in Glasgow and will join the independent trustee firm in September following five years with Deloitte, where she was responsible for the firm's employer covenant advisory services in Scotland.
Earlier in her career, she held positions with EY and PwC in corporate finance and restructuring roles.
Capital Cranfield said the hire brings the firm's total number of professional trustees to 38, five of whom who are based in Scotland to serve the firm's expanding business in the region.
Managing director Neil McPherson said the firm expected to make further appointments in the coming months both to replace individuals retiring from the business but also to "capacity plan" for new business.
Commenting on the appointment, McPherson said: "Lukshmi comes highly recommended by some of our team who have known, and worked with, her for some time.
"Her experience in advising both employers and trustees on covenant matters will bring considerable benefit to her clients, particularly in developing integrated risk management frameworks, and broaden our own skill base still wider."
