In taking on her new role, which also sees her being appointed to the Board of Jersey Finance, Amy will extend her existing responsibilities as Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Head of Strategic Projects for Jersey Finance to include CEO deputising responsibilities across the entire organisation.
Having joined Jersey Finance in 2011, Amy, who was born in Jersey, has been COO since 2014 and also leads its Strategic Projects function, which undertakes initiatives to help develop aspects of the finance industry.
Prior to that, she was a Tax Manager with PwC in the Channel Islands where she specialised in the taxation of offshore funds and Jersey corporate vehicles and provided international structuring advice to a global client base. She is qualified as a Chartered Tax Advisor and a Chartered Accountant.
Geoff Cook, CEO, Jersey Finance, said: “Amy moving into this role reflects the importance to the organisation of having clarity around leadership and representation in the absence of the CEO as well as a strong, robust internal operational capability and her promotion is fully deserved. Amy’s considerable experience at Jersey Finance and her understanding of all corners of Jersey’s finance industry will ensure that Jersey Finance can call on the highest calibre of leadership as we continue to represent and help grow the Island’s finance industry.”
