The Aztec Group is delighted to announce they have recently promoted Rylee Muddle, Senior Financial Reporting Manager, to their first Chief Risk Officer (CRO).

Rylee’s role as Chief Risk Officer will focus on providing overall leadership, vision and direction for enterprise wide risk management with the aim of leading the Aztec Group’s risk management function in the ever changing regulatory environment.

Rylee joined the Aztec Group in 2011 and has since been in charge of the accounting function within the Group’s Luxembourg office. Rylee has moved to Jersey to take up his new role as CRO and reports directly into Aztec Group’s CEO Edward Moore.

Edward commented ‘This is a significant appointment for the Aztec Group as we recognise the increasing importance of managing risk in our business and our responsibility to our clients. Rylee has the experience and leadership skills to deliver this role to full capacity and to ensure we continue to meet all regulatory requirements.’

Rylee is a certified chartered accountant and has twelve years’ experience in financial services. His experience includes banking, life insurance and private equity, having worked for UBS Capital in the UK, Ernst & Young in New Zealand and for the Suncorp Group across both New Zealand and Australia before joining the Aztec Group.

Rylee commented ‘I’m very much looking forward to my new role. My background is in risk and internal audit and I am confident my extensive advisory experience will be hugely beneficial in driving the Group forward in in my CRO role.’
