Jo is a highly-skilled Trust practitioner and will lead one of the Jersey office’s private client teams. Having begun a focused career in Trust on a graduate trainee programme, Jo has since gained more than 25 years’ experience working for a number of local trust companies which she’ll be drawing on to support her team to provide the administration of a variety of structures including trust, corporate and family office.
Heading up the Jersey office’s HR function, Emma brings strategic and operational experience in HR and learning and development to the business. Emma will work with the team to deliver high performance and organisational success by helping foster and further develop engagement and a positive culture.

Daniel Reynolds, Managing Director of PraxisIFM Trust in Jersey, said: ‘‘We have now entered our 50th year of business on the Island with a renewed energy and focus on private wealth and corporate services. Nathan and Jo’s appointments are a reflection of that, and I know, as experienced professionals, they will both be instrumental in moving our Jersey business forward in this direction.
“As our team grows, so does the support needed from our HR department. Emma is a wonderful addition, whose expertise and management skills will ensure we can continue to deliver exceptional client service by retaining and recruiting the best people. I am delighted to welcome all three to the team.’
