Amy Bryant has been named to succeed Richard Corrigan as deputy chief executive of Jersey Finance, the organisation said today.
Corrigan, who joined Jersey Finance at the beginning of 2013 and was named deputy CEO in 2014, left the organisation at the end of March to become chief officer of the States of Jersey’s financial services, digital and competition teams.
She joined Jersey Finance in 2011, and most recently has been chief operating officer and head of Strategic Projects.
In her new role she will retain her existing responsibilities in those capacities, while adding “CEO-deputising responsibilities” across the organisation, according to the statement announcing her promotion.
She will also join the board of Jersey Finance, the organisation said.
Prior to coming to Jersey Finance, Bryant was a tax manager with PwC in the Channel Islands, where she specialised in the taxation of offshore funds and Jersey corporate vehicles, and provided international structuring advice to a global client base. She is a qualified Chartered Tax Adviser and Chartered Accountant.
Jersey Finance chief executive Geoff Cook said Bryant’s “considerable experience at Jersey Finance” coupled with her “understanding of all corners of Jersey’s finance industry” would be a continued asset to the organisation “as we continue to represent and help grow the Island’s finance industry”.
