Ian Strang, Chairman of VG, adds “The global risk landscape has changed significantly in recent times and managing risk is a key priority for Jersey trust companies. Iain not only brings unrivalled technical knowledge, he has a solid, holistic in-depth knowledge and understanding of our business including having had directorial oversight of our operations, compliance, IT and technology transformation, business development and marketing teams. Iain’s appointment is testament to the dedication and expertise he brings to the business and he is well positioned to drive our strategy forward. On behalf of the Board and the entire team at VG, we congratulate him.”
Iain will continue to work with the executive team and Mark Hucker, who has been appointed Executive - Strategy and Projects, to deliver VG’s strategy.
