Kroll, an independent provider of global risk and financial advisory solutions, has appointed Mark Le Page as Director of its Guernsey office.
In his new role, Mark’s responsibilities will include leading the Guernsey-based Regulatory Consulting practice. Kroll’s Guernsey office opened earlier this year, expanding the firm’s Channel Island footprint, and building upon its presence in Jersey over the last ten years.
Prior to joining Kroll, Mark (pictured) led the Guernsey regulatory team at another organization for over three years where he was a subject matter expert for blockchain, the firm’s response to the European Commission on the digital euro consultation, and the construction of the firm’s machine learning tool for European financial services regulation. In this role, he provided anti-money laundering remediation support to clients as well as skilled persons reviews for the regulator.
Mark has also previously held the position of Deputy Director at the Guernsey Financial Services Commission where he was responsible for consolidating and creating the investment product strategy and project managing investment rules, including open-and closed-ended funds, private investment funds, rules for stock exchanges and market code of conduct.
Mark has a Global Executive Master’s degree in management research from ESCP Business School and is currently working towards a Global Executive Ph.D.
Malin Nilsson, Managing Director, Financial Services Compliance and Regulation, Kroll, Jersey, said: “Mark is a highly experienced financial services regulatory practitioner and brings with him a wealth of experience, an incredible amount of technical expertise, and a deep understanding of the local market, making him an extremely valuable member of the team.
“We are delighted to have Mark on board leading the Regulatory Consulting practice in our new Guernsey office and look forward to working with him to provide high-quality services on the island as the practice continues to grow.”
