Building on a host of appointments to date in 2022, we have further strengthened our corporate and capital markets team with the appointments of Gabriela Jakubczyk as Associate Director and Matthew Hibbs as Manager.
Gabriela joins VG as Associate Director in the corporate team where she will work alongside Steve Langan, Director of Corporate and Capital Markets, to build and develop the team and VG’s offering. She joins from Aztec Group, a fund and corporate services provider to the alternative assets industry, where she spent two years as a senior client relationships manager specialising in private equity. She has also held managerial roles within the corporate and capital markets teams at Intertrust Group and Crestbridge. Gabriela is a Chartered member of the Chartered Governance Institute and is currently studying towards the Institute of Directors Certificate in Company Direction.
Matthew also joins VG’s corporate team as Manager, bringing 14 years’ experience of traditional trust and company administration. He most recently worked at Pentera Trust Company in Jersey, where he ran an extensive portfolio of real estate companies involving commercial and residential assets across a variety of jurisdictions. He previously held roles at the Royal Bank of Canada’s wealth management division in Jersey and Ogier. Matthew holds the CGI Diploma in International Finance and Administration.
Meanwhile, Zach joins VG as a trust officer from Oak Group, where he administered a portfolio of companies, trusts, registered offices, and other entities. He has also held roles at JTC Trust Company and Minerva Trust Company. Zach holds the CGI Certificate in Offshore Finance and Administration.
The new hires follow several appointments and promotions across VG’s funds, private client and corporate teams earlier this year, continuing the business’s promising growth trajectory.
Stephen Langan, Director of Corporate and Capital Markets at VG, commented on the new hires:
“VG’s Corporate team continues to go from strength to strength and the addition of Gabriela, Matthew and Zach will greatly assist our push forward into 2022. Having worked previously with Gabriela and Matthew, I am confident that their experience and technical expertise across a wide range of areas will complement our existing and new business structures. Zach has also slotted in seamlessly and we will be looking to make further strategic hires over the coming months to support our ambition of becoming a corporate services provider of choice in Jersey for key market participants, originators and leading intermediaries”.
