Deputy Lyndon Trott has been reappointed as Chair to the Guernsey Finance Board of Directors.
Deputy Trott, who has previously served in the States of Guernsey as both Treasury Minister and Chief Minister, originally joined the board of Guernsey Finance in 2014 and was appointed Chair two years later. Since his appointment, he has completed two consecutive three-year terms, with this current term due to end in 2025.
Deputy Trott, whose current non-executive interests span Private Equity, Investment Management and Private Wealth and Pensions, said it was a great honour to be able to continue in the role.
“I consider it a great privilege to serve a further three years as part of an excellent, modern and dynamic team, which our Board are justifiably very proud of,” he said. “Guernsey Finance, under the brand WE ARE GUERNSEY, provides an essential role in helping to not simply promote, but showcase the outstanding depth, substance and expertise within our primary economic sector.”
Guernsey Finance’s role is to promote and connect Guernsey, as a leading international finance centre, in its chosen markets across the globe. To achieve this, the agency works closely with industry, government and the regulator.
Guernsey Finance Chief Executive Rupert Pleasant warmly welcomed Deputy Trott’s reappointment: “We are so fortunate to have a Chair who is both incredibly knowledgeable about Guernsey’s finance sector and who is so deeply committed to the role. The team and I are delighted to have the expertise and care that Deputy Trott brings in his capacity as Chair, not to mention the continuity that his reappointment will provide.”
