Leading Guernsey-based independent trust company Trust Corporation International has appointed Mort Mirghavameddin as its Chief Executive.
Mr Mirghavameddin has gathered a wealth of relevant experience during his lengthy career in the financial services sector and brings significant leadership pedigree to Trust Corporation International.
He is a familiar face to Guernsey’s financial community, having served as Managing Director of Investec Bank in the Channel Islands from 2001 to 2009. During his tenure, he developed and implemented a strategy and business model at the bank which led to an unprecedented period of growth with an increase in profits of in excess of 30% per annum on average.
Upon leaving Investec Mr Mirghavameddin established a real estate fund from the UK that provided mezzanine finance to real estate development clients, before being appointed as Chief Executive at Jordan International Bank, a position that he held until recently.
At Trust Corporation International, Mr Mirghavameddin will be responsible for shaping and implementing the long-term strategy of a business that has gone from strength–to-strength during its 15-year history to ensure continued business growth in an ever-evolving market place.
“As an independent business that prides itself on the quality of its practitioners, our aim was to hire someone who could shape and lead our business as it stands and into the future; as a dynamic, driven and visionary individual, Mort undoubtedly fits that bill,” said Ken Bradley, Non-Executive Chairman at Trust Corporation International.
Mr Mirghavameddin said: “Trust Corporation has been on a steady growth trajectory and is now at an important stage in its development. The people here are of exceptional quality and really differentiate Trust Corporation from its competitors. These are solid foundations upon which to build further business success and surpass what the firm has already achieved. I very much look forward to joining the team on this journey. ”
