Hawksford Group announces 12 mid-year promotions across Jersey


Global corporate, private client and fund services provider, Hawksford, has further strengthened its team of industry professionals by recognising 12 Jersey-based individuals with mid-year promotions across client facing and business services teams. Among these promotions is Daniel Mardell, who has been promoted to Director of Global Operations Centre & Infrastructure. Daniel joined Hawksford in 2019 and his substantial experience in cloud infrastructure is key to Hawksford’s well-developed platforms and future-proofed infrastructure strategy. He leads the team delivering the technology and systems, contributing to the company’s evolution in becoming a leader in hybrid working, which will be reflected in their newly renovated office, re-opening its doors this month. The promotions also see Zara Campbell take up the position of Associate Director, Private Client Services. Zara is an accomplished administrator for family offices, as well as wealth-holding structures for commercial and private portfolios. She is a qualified company secretary, experienced in corporate governance for complex multi-jurisdictional families, and is passionate about providing great client service. The business has also made a further raft of promotions across its teams in Hong Kong, Mainland China, Singapore and London, which included one director level promotion and two associate director promotions. Assuming these senior level positions are, Rebecca Cox, who’s taking on the role of Director in Hawksford’s London office, Antonio Valdes, Associate Director in Hong Kong, with a continued focus on Latin American and Spanish-speaking clients for the Group, and Christina Tan, promoted to Associate Director in Singapore with responsibility for delivering Hawkford’s people strategy for Asia. The promotions follow Hawksford’s recent shortlist success at a number of prestigious industry awards. The company has been shortlisted for ‘Trust Company of the Year – Jersey’ at the Citywealth IFC Awards 2022, as well as ‘Fund Administration: Under $50bn’ at the Drawdown Awards 2021. Michel van Leeuwen, Group Chief Executive at Hawksford, commented: “We are incredibly proud to be strengthening our teams across our international offices with these promotions – each of these individuals plays a vital role in the success of Hawksford and are truly deserving of this recognition for all their hard work. “As we look to the future, and the company’s ambition to becoming a leader in smart working, there is a real optimism within the business and these promotions represent an exciting step change in Hawksford’s successful evolution.”
