Graeme McArthur, CEO

Crestbridge has made a number of promotions across its network of offices reflecting its continued growth. Over the past financial year, the business has made 42 internal promotions across the group.

In Jersey, Stephanie Marriott has been made a Director within the Corporate Services team, whilst Chl Sorda (Family Office Services), Mark Collins and Brian Jemwa (Central Services) have all been made Associate Directors, and Nicola Nicholson Head of Marketing.

In Bahrain, Mona Aladham has been promoted to Assistant Manager, as has Mareike Sauerwein in Luxembourg. In the Cayman Islands, Amanda Kong becomes a Senior Vice President, Alvin Bhawanie a Vice President and Pierre Connolly, Assistant Vice President.

Others recognised in Jersey include Senior Managers Chris Corfield (Real Estate Services), James Milner (Management Company Services) and Zoe Dewhurst (Corporate Services). Andrew Rafferty (Real Estate Services), Oana Fleseriu (Real Estate Services), and Sonia Cadwallader (Corporate Services) have all been promoted to Manager, whilst Daniel Cavey (Family Office Services) and Henry Clarke (Client Accounting) have been promoted to Assistant Manager.

The promotions coincide with Crestbridge’s 20th anniversary and a refreshed look for the brand. The business is continuing to see significant growth across its corporate, fund, real estate and family office services and earlier in the year completed the acquisition of Kingfisher Property. Crestbridge now employs over 250 staff across its offices in Bahrain, the Cayman Islands, Jersey, London and Luxembourg and offers a wide range of administration, accounting, management and governance services to multi-national clients.

Commenting on the promotions, Graeme McArthur, CEO, Crestbridge said:

“It’s fitting that as we mark such a landmark anniversary, we’re continuing to see strong growth across all our business lines and locations. The roll-out of our new brand earlier this summer reinforces just how ambitious we are in terms of extending our global reach and enhancing our service lines to benefit our clients.

We recognise that our success and that of our clients is down to the quality of the people who work here at Crestbridge. Our continued commitment to clients is dependent on having excellent people, and at Crestbridge we’ve always sought to support our staff with a mix of professional development and career progression. I’m pleased to be able to recognise a number of key individuals in this latest round of promotions who will, I’m sure, continue to play a crucial role in our ongoing success.”

Crestbridge recently won the ‘Fund Administrator (under $30bn AUA)’ category at The Drawdown’s inaugural Private Equity European Services Awards and was named ‘Family Office of the Year’ for the second consecutive year at the Citywealth Magic Circle Awards.
