We are delighted to announce that Iain Mason has been promoted to Managing Director, replacing Mark Hucker who stepped down in January 2020.

Iain joined VG in 2012 to provide transactional, regulatory and risk management advice to client teams and assist in the delivery of clients’ needs. Iain has held a number of senior operational and compliance roles and brings over 30 years’ experience within Jersey’s financial services industry.

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.

Iain commented “We all recognise the contribution that Mark Hucker has made to the success of VG, displaying sound leadership and cultivating a positive culture that differentiates us from our competition. I am looking forward to leveraging that success and building on the solid foundations Mark has laid to deliver the service excellence that our clients deserve and expect.”
