“We have recently restructured our trust entities, bringing the offices in Jersey and Guernsey together under one brand and integrated the businesses with a single strategy, management team, system and operations. Bernie has now come on board to drive the new shared strategic vision and provide common leadership to our trust operations across the Channel Islands.
“In welcoming Bernie, I would also like to express my appreciation to the management and staff at Nedgroup Trust, who have worked tirelessly with me throughout the period of restructure and rebranding.”
