Hawksford appoints four associate directors


Hawksford has strengthened its governance, private client and funds teams with four associate director appointments.

David Hart has worked in the financial services industry for 40 years, with his career experience spanning the insurance, private client and compliance sectors. As associate director of Hawksford’s risk, governance and compliance (RGC) team he will provide the RGC director with technical advice on regulatory matters and assist with the management of Hawksford’s 15-strong team of Jersey based compliance professionals.
Hart worked at the Jersey Financial Services commission for 12 years and was also an independent compliance consultant to trust, investment and insurance businesses before joining Hawksford in 2016.
Compliance specialist Nicky Longmuir has also been appointed an associate director within RGC. Longmuir is Hawksford’s MLRO and as part of her money laundering reporting duties, she is responsible for advising and supporting the company on the identification of suspicious activity. With 25 years’ private client and compliance experience she previously worked for Minerva and Ansbacher Trustees Jersey and ANZ Gringlays Trust Jersey before joining Hawksford in 2015.
Laura Le Meur, who joined Hawksford as a trainee in 2007, is now an associate director in recognition of the technical expertise she brings to the private client team. She qualified as an English solicitor in 2010 after training with Jersey-based Nigel Harris & Partners and completed her litigation seat with CJ Jones Solicitors in London. An associate member of the Chartered Institute of Management, Le Meur works on a number of complex structures, combining advisory work with a focus on matters with a litigious element.
Keith McSorley, who has nearly 20 years’ industry experience, has joined Hawksford as associate director of funds. He joins from ABN AMRO and has held various roles at a number of high profile firms, including eight years as head of private equity fund administration at UBS Jersey. In his new role he will focus on team management as well as developing funds-related policies and procedures and new business opportunities.
Michel van Leeuwen (pictured), group chief executive, says: “David, Nicky, Laura and Keith bring significant strength and depth to Hawksford’s compliance, private client and funds offerings. They are highly skilled professionals who bring robust experience to their respective teams and their associate director appointments are a reflection of the significant expertise they bring to Hawksford.”
Hawksford is an international corporate, private client and funds business.
