Gilly Green, Managing Partner and Head of Wealth Management & Private Banking at consulting firm Sionic has won ‘Leading Individual (Advisor)’ at The Ninth Annual WealthBriefing European Awards 2021.
Sionic has also been commended in both the ‘Management Consultancy’ and ‘Client Lifecycle Management Solution’ categories. The WealthBriefing awards are designed to recognise outstanding organisations, grouped by specialism and geography, which the prestigious panel of independent judges deemed to have ‘demonstrated innovation and excellence during the last year’.
The ‘Leading Individual Advisor’ category is particularly highly contested, with a small group of finalists and commended submissions chosen from a large pool of entrants before an ultimate winner is selected by the judges. It is this rigorous process of peer and industry assessment that makes the WealthBriefing awards so highly prized.
Commenting on Gilly Green as a “stand-out individual and nomination”, the judges said: “Our winner has built industry practice from scratch over many years and delivered exceptional client service and growth in 2020. Highly supportive client references attest to her industry knowledge, team leadership and focus on delivering actual change and positive outcomes to clients.”
The judges also commended Gilly’s entire Wealth Management & Private Banking team for their approach to client service, and in particular for their efforts in “stepping up in response to COVID”.
Gilly Green told Channel Eye: “My thanks to everyone who judged these awards, to my clients and most of all to my team – I am honoured to be their leader. When I founded the original Wealth Management & Private Banking Practice back in 2011, I would have been so proud to know that a decade later, we are part of a global firm serving an international client base, with a team of industry-leading wealth management and private banking specialists – and a gender balance of 50% in my team; still a rare feat in our sector. I’m excited to see what the next decade brings!”
Sionic CEO, Craig Sher, added: “Gilly is an outstanding leader who combines technical expertise, project and people expertise. And we are celebrating not only Gilly’s outright win but also added prestigious recognition for her entire team and for our innovative approach to Client Lifecycle Management, developed in close collaboration with our colleagues Pino Vallejo and Jenny Tatum. I could not be more proud of what Gilly and the whole of Sionic achieve, together.”
