Corporate, private client and funds company Hawksford has made three associate director promotions.  

Rachel Keates, who joined Hawksford’s private client team in 2012, is responsible for the strategic operational development of the private client team and the wider company, ensuring both are well positioned to respond to the changing needs of an evolving marketplace. In addition to her client-facing role, she has been instrumental in formulating Hawksford’s response to developing international regulation, including FATCA and the Common Reporting Standard.  

Since joining the company in 2014, Cherith Fothergill has developed Hawksford’s profile and positioning in Asia, including the launch of the Hong Kong office, and managed the communications of the company’s international cross-border structuring and corporate solutions capabilities. Cherith will lead Hawksford’s international marketing team’s coordination of integrated campaigns for the company’s corporate, private client and funds specialisms.  

Learning and development specialist Marisa Ballantyne joined Hawksford in 2006. A qualified executive coach, she has designed and implemented Hawksford’s Graduate and Trainee Programme as well as the Management Development Programme. Marisa has overall responsibility for the management of Hawksford’s learning and development function and strategy.  

Maxine Rawlins, CEO of Hawksford, said: ‘Rachel, Cherith and Marisa have each made significant contributions to Hawksford within their business areas and they thoroughly deserve this acknowledgment of their talent and commitment. The promotions recognise the role that they play in enabling Hawksford to consistently deliver impeccable client service.’
