Heather Tibbo name Woman of the Year in Citywealth awards

Heather Tibbo, Group Head of Family Office Services at Crestbridge, has received further recognition after being named Bronze winner ‘Woman of the Year – Leadership (Financial Organisation)’ at this year’s Citywealth Powerwomen Awards.

The Awards, now in their seventh year, were presented at a gala ceremony held last night (21 February) at the Rosewood London Hotel.

Designed to celebrate leading and inspirational women in the wealth management industry, the awards feature a range of categories recognising individuals who have excelled over the past twelve months and firms that have proven to be champions of female leadership and diversity. Winners of the awards were selected by a panel of independent judges and voted for by the public. This is the second year in a row that Heather has been shortlisted for the awards, last year she named ‘gold winner’ in the same category.

Heather has over 20 years’ experience in the UHNW sector and has worked with UHNWIs, their families and advisers to provide a comprehensive range of family office services based in multiple jurisdictions.  As well as being responsible for the Family Office Services business, Heather is also a member of Crestbridge’s Executive team with input to the strategic direction and expansion of the business.

The award win maintains a period of success for Crestbridge as earlier this month the business was named as one of the finalists in the ‘Independent Trust Company’ category in this year’s Wealthbriefing Europe Awards, as well as being named ‘Jersey Trust Company of the Year’ and runner up in the ‘Family Office’ category at the 2019 Citywealth International Finance Centres Awards. Last month, Heather also featured in ePrivateClient’s 50 Most Influential List.

Commenting on her award win, Heather said: "I’m clearly delighted to have been recognised through these awards once again, particularly alongside such leading professionals and inspirational people from right across the wealth management sector. At Crestbridge we always strive to be the best we can be to help our clients be successful, and this award is really a reflection of that shared team ethos.”
