The Channel Islands’ technology solutions provider, C5 Alliance has promoted Chris Ash as its new Managing Director in Guernsey.
In his new role, Chris will develop and drive the firm’s strategy in Guernsey, which will be aligned with the C5 Jersey office and the wider BDO Jersey Group who acquired C5 Alliance in 2018. His focus is on building and growing the team and on business development.
Chris joined C5 Alliance in 2018 as Head of Project Delivery, before being appointed to Head of C5 Guernsey in April 2019. Prior to joining C5, Chris worked as a Management Consultant for BDO Greenlight and KPMG. During this time, he assisted clients across several sectors, including finance (fiduciary, insurance and banking), travel and tourism, third sector, utilities and intellectual property. During his career, Chris has worked as a Business Analyst, a Project Manager and, in an advisory capacity, helping businesses implement change successfully.
Chris said: “I’m delighted to have been appointed. We have a wonderful team in Guernsey that is well supported by our colleagues in Jersey. As part of the wider BDO Jersey Group we now have such a broad offering and can support our clients in so many different ways – from advisory work to training in a range of different areas, such as cloud, network and security, application development, change and transformation and data and reporting. It’s an exciting time for us as we’ve recently digitally transformed the business putting the platforms, processes and people in place to both support our existing clients and to build and grow the business.”
Matthew Corbin, Chief Executive Officer of BDO in Jersey, said: “Chris’ promotion strengthens the group immensely. Chris has significant expertise and is an exceptional leader. He is the ideal candidate to drive the next period of growth in Guernsey.”
