Leading international trust and corporate services provider, Equiom, has announced the promotion of two high profile, Jersey-based Directors.

Richard Tribe becomes Group Business Development Director, assuming full responsibility for Equiom’s European Business Development and Corporate Communications teams located in Jersey, Guernsey, the Isle of Man and Malta.

Heather Bestwick, meanwhile, has assumed the role of Non-Executive Chairperson for Equiom (Guernsey) Limited following her appointment as Non-Executive Director of Equiom (Jersey) Limited in July 2014.   Heather’s expanded remit will include senior recruitment and staff development across the Jersey and Guernsey offices. She will also play a key role in business integration, resulting from the acquisition of Lloyds Trust Company (Channel Islands) Limited and its subsidiaries in May 2015.

Equiom’s Global Chief Executive Officer, Sheila Dean, commented: “Following a period of rapid expansion for Equiom, the strategic requirements for the business continue to evolve.   I’m delighted that Heather and Richard will be taking on additional responsibilities and will be instrumental in moving the Group’s European operations forward. They have exceptional combined international financial services expertise and are both well renowned and respected in the Channel Islands. I have no doubt they will be key drivers in Equiom’s future success.”
