Hawksford bolsters leadership team with three senior promotions

Global corporate, private client and fund services provider, Hawksford, has enhanced its international leadership team with three senior promotions across the group.

Steve Spybey has been promoted to the role of Group Chief Operating Officer, while Caroline Morris will take on the role of Group Chief Financial Officer and Rachel Husbands will take on the role of Finance Director for Jersey.

The promotions follow a year of expansion for Hawksford, which has already seen the acquisition of two international corporate service providers, driving further growth in new and existing global markets and supporting the company’s ambitious growth strategy.

In his new role, Steve Spybey will continue to work closely with Group Chief Executive Michel van Leeuwen across the Group and help to define, shape and communicate Hawksford’s vision. He will be supporting the business to deliver against its strategic aims and create an integrated workforce with an efficient operating model.

Speaking of his promotion, Steve said: “I’m extremely proud to be taking on the new role of Group Chief Operating Officer and the opportunities that come with this role. These truly are exciting times for Hawksford, and I look forward to helping drive the growth of our business, as we continue to expand our global presence and our service offering.”

Caroline Morris’ new role as Group Chief Financial Officer brings an expansion of her previous role of Global Head of Finance to include full ownership of banking relationships, group audit, M&A and tax planning.

Commenting on her promotion, Caroline said: “I am delighted to have been asked to oversee Hawksford’s financial relationships and operations and am looking forward to getting stuck into the role. The finance industry can often be very fast-paced and so I’m keen to use my experience to embrace this and help achieve our business goals.”

Promoted to the role of Finance Director, Rachel Husbands will work closely with Hawksford’s client services teams on all aspects of financial performance and review, ensuring that financial efficiency remains a key contributor to the success of the business and its clients. Her new role will see Hawksford’s Corporate and Funds teams benefit from the expertise she has already demonstrated while working with the Jersey Private Client team.
