Joe starts in his new position on 18 February, taking over from Geoff Cook, who is leaving after 12 years in the role.

An experienced financial services professional with a longstanding career in Jersey in the private and public sector, Joe spent the majority of his executive career with AIB, latterly as the Chief Executive Officer of the Jersey and Isle of Man offices.

He then spent just under four years with the Jersey government as Director of Financial Services, with a remit that was expanded to include Digital and Competition. 

More recently, he has been the Chief Executive of RAK International Corporate Centre in the UAE and has acted as a consultant both in Jersey and overseas. He is a previous Chair of the Jersey Bankers Association and a regular commentator on industry issues.

Joe commented: “The team at Jersey Finance has done an excellent job in establishing Jersey as one of the world’s leading international finance centres and I’m excited to have the opportunity to help lead the industry at this pivotal time for international financial services.”

Gunther Thumann, Chairman of Jersey Finance, added: “Joe has considerable experience in financial services, here in Jersey and in markets around the world, and benefits from having had both an industry and government perspective... His strategic insight into international financial services will be vital as we look to continue to provide innovative solutions and certainty to investors.”
