Senior appointments at First Names Jersey

Wait all month for a Jersey story and two come along at once. Trust, fund and corporate services provider First Names Group has appointed two new client services directors, Carol Keenan and Gerard O’Gorman, both based in the Group’s head office in Jersey.

The appointments follow the appointment of Malcolm Macleod as head of corporate services for the Channel Islands, responsible for the corporate team in the Channel Islands, working closely with Keenan. O’Gorman will assume responsibility of an existing client portfolio within the Group’s Private Client service line.

Keenan joins from Elian where she acted as group in-house counsel. Before joining First Names Group, he spent 14 years with Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), where he had responsibility for managing a large client portfolio while also overseeing a team of 50 in the private client department as Fiduciary Business Lead. He is also an Associate of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (ICSA).
