The Jersey Association of Trust Companies has elected a new President.
Lorraine Wheeler has become the first person ever to lead both the association, which represents the interests of trust companies, and STEP Jersey, which looks after individual trust professionals in the jurisdiction.
Ms Wheeler, a Client Services Director at IQ-EQ, will sit on various government advisory boards and work closely with the Government of Jersey, Jersey Finance and Jersey Financial Services Commission to drive policies affecting the sector.
Before becoming President, she was JATCo’s Vice President for four years.
Commenting on her new role, she said: “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed shaping the role of vice president over the past four years in support of former president Ian Crosby, so am very excited to now be taking that final step up. I’d like to express my thanks to Ian for his superb leadership of JATCo since 2015 – he has certainly set the bar high!
"I look forward to continue working with our hard-working and dedicated committee in driving our strategy forward and making sure our members are fully represented and heard. This is an exciting time to be taking on this role and I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
Ben Newman, Managing Director of IQ-EQ Jersey, commented: “Over the years I have seen Lorraine dedicate an incredible amount of time to the industry, speaking at various events and regularly giving up her own time to tutor and support colleagues preparing for their STEP exams. Her drive, expertise and warm nature have proven to be an invaluable asset for our business and I am confident she will take JATCo to new heights. I can’t wait to see what she achieves over the next four years.”
