Crestbridge duo recognised at CGI Jersey Graduation Dinner

Two Crestbridge real estate professionals were acknowledged for their hard work, and achievements at the Corporate Governance Institute (CGI) Jersey Graduation Dinner, held recently at the Radisson Blu.

As well as being presented with her IFA Level 5 Diploma in International Finance and Administration at the event, Hannah Penberthy, Senior Administrator in Crestbridge’s Real Estate Services team, was recognised for ‘Best Overall Completion for 2020’ in Jersey for the qualification, and for getting the top score in the Business Management paper. She also picked up the Student Excellence Award for 2020.

In addition, Andrew Rafferty, Senior Manager in Real Estate Services, was one of the Jersey-based students to be graduating as a GradCG after completing the Chartered Institute Qualifying Programme.

Held on Friday 24 September, the dinner, of which Crestbridge was a sponsor, was designed to highlight the achievements of graduates who qualified in 2019, 2020 and 2021, congratulate CGI members who progressed to a higher status, reward students who had completed the Certificate and Diploma qualifications, and celebrate those who achieved outstanding examination results during the period. In total, more than 55 students were recognised for their achievements over the course of the evening.

As well as those individuals in attendance at the event, a further 13 Crestbridge colleagues attained ICSA qualifications or passed exams in August, as part of their continuing studies:

Nicola Nicholson, Head of Marketing, attained the IFA Level 4 Award and Abigail Houghton - Fund Services, Yann Vivian - Real Estate Funds, Becky de Sousa and Daniella McGhee – Real Estate Services, all attained IFA Level 4 Certificate.

Henry Rendell and Joanna Loyer – Corporate services, Jordan Sewrey – Family Office, Abigail Griffiths – Real Estate Services, Georgia Dodd – Private Equity Funds, and Alice Ward, Ben O’Shea, and Rebecca Myles - Real Estate funds, all achieved exam success as part of their ongoing ISCA studies.

Commenting on the evening, Crestbridge CEO Dean Hodcroft, said:

“Although it was a slightly different CGI Jersey event this year, it was a fantastic opportunity to recognise the efforts of all students who have put so much work into their professional development over the past couple of years in really challenging circumstances. Crestbridge is particularly proud of Hannah, Andrew and all our colleagues who qualified or passed exams this summer, their collective achievements are simply outstanding. At Crestbridge, our people are very much the heart of our business and we’re committed to building lasting colleague relationships through the provision of comprehensive plans for continued professional development and supporting long term career aspirations’.
