His role includes working with Barclays multi-jurisdictional team, which provides banking, credit, investment and trust solutions across the key global captive insurance jurisdictions in Europe, Bermuda and Caribbean and US onshore.

Also in Jersey, David Bryon has been promoted to vice president, Peter Roux and Mark Copp have been promoted to assistant vice president and Sharron Marshall has been promoted to a BA4 level in the infrastructure team.

Managing director at Barclays, Paul Savery, says, “It is encouraging to see a number of internal promotions across the different areas of the business in the Channel Islands. Developing individuals whilst recognising their achievements is an important part of Barclays’ strategy to invest in our employees. It’s brilliant to see so many of our employees taking on greater responsibility in their roles within the company.”
