23 Sep 2013

Bedell Trust has promoted 10 people in recognition of their contribution to the continued success of the firm and in response to growing business demands. The appointments are from director level through to administrator and apply across all the business lines of the trust company.

Ariel Pinel, in the International Finance Group, is appointed a Trust Director and Dublin based Chris Morrissey becomes Associate Director. There are promotions also for Tim Trott and Victoria Ryder Elliot in the London office and in Jersey for Kiley Trehorel-Daly, Rob Willing, Joe Conway, Gaby Skelley, Craig Farrell and Kathryn Miller.

The promotions follow a further period of growth for the firm including the expansion of its private wealth management offering in the family office market at the start of the year, the introduction of a depositary service to meet regulatory changes in the funds sector and further recruitment of key individuals in target markets.

Nick Cawley, Bedell Trust CEO, commented:

‘Whilst we continue to expand and enhance our offering with new skills and expertise, the key to our success will always be the quality and commitment of our people in providing the highest possible levels of client service.

We constantly seek ways to improve the services we offer to existing and potential clients and recruiting and developing talented staff is key to this, so this significant range of promotions sits well with that objective and ensures we retain the skilled and motivated people who are able to provide our clients with the high service standards they have come to expect.’

During this period of growth, Bedell Trust has continued to be recognised by major industry publications and organisations through awards for the firm and accolades for individuals.
