Ben Hill joins as Managing Director of our Guernsey office

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Ben Hill as Managing Director of our Guernsey office.

Ben has more than 20 years’ experience in financial services in the Channel Islands and has a broad knowledge across fund administration, banking, custody, depositary and fiduciary services, including as a Non-Executive Director. He joins us from Northern Trust where he was Managing Director of the firm’s fiduciary business in Guernsey.

In his new role, Ben will oversee all aspects of the business in Guernsey including service delivery, client care and business development, and will work with the whole team to deliver operational excellence.

Ben will work with the board, group and the team on the ground to implement a strategic plan that delivers sustained growth in funds, corporate and private wealth. He replaces Mel Torode who stepped in as Interim MD at the end of 2019 and has now become a non-executive director of our Guernsey business.

Farah Ballands, CEO, commented: “Ben takes over a team that is in great shape, thanks to Mel’s hard work during what has been a challenging year for everyone. I look forward to working with Ben at this exciting time in our journey, and I am confident that he will help deliver our ambitious growth plans for this key jurisdiction.”

On his appointment, Ben Hill said: “I’m really happy to be joining Ocorian at this key time not only for our Guernsey business, but our global operation as a whole. I can't wait to get stuck in and help drive the business forward.”
