First Names Group appoints new chief executive


Fiduciary, funds and corporate services provider First Names Group has appointed Morgan Jubb as group chief executive officer.

Jubb (pictured) will replace the current CEO Declan Kenny who will move in to the role of group executive chairman.
Jubb joined First Names Group as the MBO from IFG completed in July 2012. He was appointed as chief financial and operating officer to drive the development and growth of the group through deep functional management strength, processes and systems. He has also worked together with Kenny in driving the group’s acquisition strategy, so far securing fund business Moore Management and reaching an agreement to acquire trust and corporate services provider Basel – both within the first three months of the independent group’s rebrand. The appointment is effective immediately.
Jubb has enjoyed a successful career in financial services.  Since arriving in Jersey in 1999 he has worked for Walbrook Group, Barclays Wealth and Mourant International Finance Administration (MIFA).  He then operated independently for two years, providing strategic advice to fiduciary and fund administration companies together with helping global organisations through the integration process following mergers and acquisitions.
Jubb says: “Since gaining our independence last year we set very clear aspirations of what we wanted to achieve. Very good progress has been made to date and I’m very excited and focused to lead the group through the rest of the journey.”
Kenny, who has served as CEO since 2003, says: “Morgan is a strong leader with a passion for finance and deep understanding of the business. His track record of execution and strategic leadership, combined with his open-minded approach to problem solving has earned him the respect of employees, clients and partners group wide. He has the right combination of knowledge, depth and experience to lead the company during this period of rapid change. Morgan’s appointment means that I will be able to concentrate on my new role and I am really looking forward to that challenge.”
First Names Group is the parent company of Moore Management and FNTC.
