The expertise and depth of knowledge across Crestbridge’s Family Office Services team has been highlighted with a trio of recent industry successes.

Director and Head of Family Office Services Heather Tibbo has been shortlisted in the ‘Woman of the Year - Financial Organisation’ in the Citywealth Powerwomen Awards 2019, an award she won last year. Now in their seventh year, the Awards aim to recognise individuals and companies who maximise the potential of women in wealth with winners being announced at a ceremony in London on 21 February 2019.

Heather has over 20 years’ experience in the UHNW sector and has worked with UHNWIs, their families and institutions to provide a comprehensive range of family office services to families and corporate clients 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.

Meanwhile, Danielle Cottignies, Manager, has also been recognised by Citywealth, picking up a Silver Award in the ‘Family Office Individual of the Year’ category for the Citywealth Future Leaders Awards, held in London on 8 November and designed to champion young professionals in the wealth sector.

Danielle has significant experience of managing multiple-entities in various jurisdictions including Jersey, the UK, Europe and the US, and of working with a broad range of assets. She has a particular focus on the Middle East, providing administrative services to complex structures including those with Sharia’a provisions.

Finally, Diana Knight, Senior Administrator, was a winner at the recent STEP Jersey Student Awards, being the top scoring student in two STEP Diploma papers – ‘International Trust Management, Trust Administration & Accounts’, and ‘International Trust Management’. Diana was presented with her trophies at a black-tie dinner at the Royal Yacht Hotel on 16 November.

With experience in retail and private banking, Diana joined Crestbridge earlier this year and was also a winner at the STEP Jersey Student Awards in 2017.

Heather Tibbo, Director and Head of Family Office Services, commented on the team’s recent successes: “We place a real value on the strength and depth of our multi-jurisdictional knowledge and this recent recognition is a reflection of that. The success of our clients really matters to us, so it’s important that we continue to strive to deliver the best service we possibly can to help them achieve their ambitions. I’m delighted that our capabilities continue to be recognised by the industry.”

Earlier this year, Crestbridge was also recognised at the Citywealth Magic Circle Awards, for the second consecutive year, as ‘Family Office of the Year’.
