First Names Group has appointed Matt Haynes as group business development director.

Haynes will be based in the Jersey office and responsible for supporting the organic growth of the group. He will develop key client and intermediary initiatives in addition to new business opportunities across the group’s 14 locations.
Haynes will also oversee the group business development team, reporting to group commercial director Kevin O’Connell.
He joins First Names Group from Hawksford where he was director of business development and responsible for driving the company’s business development activity and playing an active role in the development of relationships with both clients and intermediaries. Prior to this he held senior business development roles at Ogier and Barclays Wealth Structuring.
O’Connell says: “I would like to welcome Matt to the group. I am sure he will be a great asset to the team, his experience and broad skillset will be instrumental in the continued growth of the businesses. As a group, we have grown substantially in the last two years and we have reached the point where we are now in the desired locations across the world and are focussing on consolidating and growing the business organically and I cannot think of a better choice than Matt to help us achieve this.”
Haynes says: “I am delighted to be joining First Names Group. I am looking forward to hitting the ground running and working closely with the teams across the group to strengthen and drive business development activity.”
