Brooks Macdonald International creates Jersey-based business development team


Brooks Macdonald International (BMI) has formed a new business development team in Jersey, with the appointment of Richard Hughes as head of business development and Chris Donoghue as senior business development manager, who will both be supported by Adrienne Hodgson.

The creation of the new team brings further momentum to BMI’s international expansion, with a focus on growing business within the Channel Islands and further abroad.
Hughes brings over 12 years of business development experience in the financial services industry and has a strong track record of working internationally. He joins from global financial services firm Vistra, where he worked as business development director for three years, having previously worked at BNP Paribas in a similar capacity.
Donoghue has over 25 years’ experience in the financial services industry, having held a number of different roles including stockbroking, portfolio management, and managing a private banking investment team. Donoghue joins Brooks Macdonald from HSBC Private Bank, where he was head of investment group, Jersey.
John Davey (pictured), chief executive of BMI, says: “The formation of a new business development team based offshore is a natural progression of BMI’s continuing growth and representative of our commitment to growing our business within the Channel Islands and internationally. Richard and Chris both bring an impressive depth of experience, with complementary skills, that I am confident will be beneficial for our customers and help propel our business in the Channel Islands further forward.”
Hughes says: “The rapid growth and international outlook of BMI was extremely appealing to me, especially as I was familiar with the work of the investment team from my time at BNP Paribas. It is a great opportunity to join them at such an exciting time in the business’ expansion and look forward to growing BMI’s business within the Channel Islands and overseas.”
