Investec Bank (Channel Islands) Limited has appointed Fionnuala Carvill to its Board as a Non-Executive Director.
Ms Carvill will replace Carol Goodwin, who is retiring after completing her term of office. Mrs Goodwin says the growth of the organisation from a relatively small bank to its position in the finance industry today has been outstanding. “The bank has changed a great deal since I first became involved with the organisation,” she said. “Investec created a wholly different culture in the Channel Islands banking sector and the values it held then hold true today. I believe the business is in a strong position to continue to build on those strengths. Investec has always been about its people; it has assembled an exceptional team and we have become an employer of choice. The market has definitely become more competitive but I firmly believe our investment in our people will help us deliver more growth and innovation in the future .”
Ian Wohlman, Chairman of Investec Bank (Channel Islands) Ltd said: “I would like to thank Carol Goodwin for her valuable service to the bank, not just as a member of our Board but as a former Managing Director of the company. Carol has revolutionised the landscape for women in business in Guernsey and has contributed significantly to our commitment to diversity and equality across our teams. We wish her well for the future and welcome her successor, Fionnuala Carvill, to the Board as Non-Executive Director. Fionnuala has an impeccable reputation and considerable industry experience which will strengthen the leadership team as we continue to grow our business in the Channel Islands.”
Commenting on her appointment, Ms Carvill said: “I am delighted to join the Board at Investec. It is a forward-thinking business dedicated to delivering excellent service to its High Net Worth, Trust & Corporate Service Provider and Family Office clients, and I aim to bring my experience and skills to the team to help deliver its long-term vision.”
