Butterfield has appointed Jackie Videgrain as Vice President of Risk for its operations in Jersey. The appointment strengthens the Bank’s risk management team as it continues its expansion in the Channel Islands.
With a financial services career spanning 35 years, Ms Videgrain has an extensive background in the banking, treasury trust and fund sectors. Her role will focus on Butterfield’s credit processes, including assessment and group policy adherence, in addition to maintaining effective operations through analysis and monitoring.
Noel McLaughlin, Managing Director of Butterfield in Jersey commented: “We are excited to welcome Jackie to the team. Her wealth of experience will add a depth of industry expertise and leadership experience as we continue to develop our Jersey presence; it’s great to have an expert like Jackie on board.”
Ms Videgrain said: “Having previously worked at Butterfield on a consultancy basis, I know the Bank has a great culture, with a strong work ethic and a wonderful team. My role has begun at a very unusual time and our team has worked incredibly hard to respond to the impact of the coronavirus, adapting to a completely unprecedented situation. Business continuity plans have been implemented to protect the workforce and we are working together to ensure the exceptional service Butterfield offers to its clients continues.”
Working alongside Ms Videgrain is Assistant Vice President of Operation and Credit Risk, Daniel Kitchen.
