Jersey finance industry finds new leader

Joe_MoynihanThe Jersey financial services industry has appointed Joe Moynihan to lead its trade body, Jersey Finance.

Moynihan is a former director of financial services with the Government of Jersey, but more recently worked as chief executive of RAK International Corporate Centre in the UAE, and as a consultant.

He is to start as Jersey Finance chief executive on February 18 and takes over from Geoff Cook, who was in the role for 12 years.

Jersey Finance said Moynihan has a longstanding career in Jersey in both the private and public sector. He has spent the majority of his executive career with AIB, latterly as the chief executive for Jersey and Isle of Man offices.

Gunther Thumann, chairman, Jersey Finance, said: “Joe has considerable experience in financial services gained both here in Jersey and in markets around the world, and benefits from having had both an industry and government perspective, giving him an excellent understanding of our stakeholders and the environment Jersey’s finance industry exists in.”
