JTC is pleased to announce the appointment of Dean Blackburn, Chief Commercial Officer, to the Group Holdings board in recognition of the integral role he has played in the Group’s growth since joining JTC at the start of 2019 – and the increasing importance of this Group role as JTC focuses on delivering the next phase of its strategic growth plans.

In his expanded role, Dean will continue to work closely with the Group CEO and Holdings Board, with a particular emphasis on working with the Group heads of both Institutional Client Services (ICS) and Private Client Services (PCS) to deliver new organic and inorganic growth opportunities. Dean will continue to lead the Group’s global banking and treasury functions in addition to overseeing JTC’s growing complementary client service lines and delivery of its core strategic initiatives.

As part of these changes, Dean will join the PCS Global board, while continuing to be a member of the ICS Global board and the Group’s Development Committee; with ongoing responsibility for the effective commercial integration arising from the Group’s M&A activity.

Commenting on Dean’s promotion, Nigel Le Quesne, CEO JTC, said:

“Dean’s appointment to the Group Holdings Board is integral for the Group, most notably given his ability to enable the strategic growth plan. Dean has shown his capability to make a clear difference and I have no doubt that he will continue to make every success of this significant appointment.”

Reflecting on his new role, Dean said:

“Since joining JTC, I have been hugely impressed by our people, culture and ambition to serve our clients better every day. We’ve achieved a great deal over the last few years, and I’m delighted to have been given an opportunity to play a greater role in supporting our clients and people further maximise their potential during the next phase of our plans.”

These changes will take effect immediately.
