Double recognition for Crestbridge in ‘most influential’ private client list
Crestbridge has received double recognition in a new list of private client industry leaders published this week.
Crestbridge Group Chairman John Harris and Group Head of Family Office Services Heather Tibbo have both been included in the ‘50 Most Influential’ list, published by PAM Insight this week and which recognises and celebrates the most prominent and important figures in the UK and UK Crown Dependencies’ private client sector.
As well as recognising the full careers to date of the individuals included, the annual list also identifies those who are at the forefront of innovation in the private wealth space and highlights their achievements over the past year.
John joined Crestbridge in late 2018 as non-executive chairman and before that held a number of high-profile senior roles, most recently as Director General of the Jersey Financial Services Commission (JFSC) – a position he held for twelve years. He is a regular contributor to financial services debates on numerous subjects, including the global role of International Finance Centres.
Heather, who was also included in the list last year, 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.
John Harris said: “This has been a hugely enlightening and exciting first year for me as Chairman at Crestbridge. Our approach is very much a team one, where our aim is on working together to deliver exceptional service to clients. To be included in this list is clearly very pleasing personally, but it’s also reflective of that collective team ethos.”
Commenting on her inclusion, Heather Tibbo added: “Our unerring focus continues to be on helping family offices to navigate an increasingly complex world, and being included in lists like this is incredibly helpful in reflecting the high standards we hold ourselves to right across the team.”
Featuring prominently in the 50 Most Influential List follows a number of successes for Crestbridge in the family office and private client space this year, with the firm also featuring regularly in key initiatives from Wealthbriefing and Citywealth.
