Hawksford has appointed Vicky Mills as associate director in its 58-person global private client team.
Mills, who has more than 20 years’ experience in the trust industry, will be working with other directors to implement Hawksford’s business plan, whilst also developing new business opportunities and client relationships, ensuring quality service for existing clients, as well as team oversight and development.
‘I have developed extensive knowledge over the years in the trust sector and managing the needs of ultra high net worth clients. I spent 12 years in my prior organisation dealing primarily with the Asia market, which will be extremely useful with Hawksford recently acquiring a trust licence in Singapore. I am looking forward to building on my experience at this time of exciting growth and development, and working with clients from other regions too,’ says Mills.
‘Hawksford has wide expertise across a range of structuring solutions, which means clients can receive a breadth of choice in terms of services from the one organisation. This affords the opportunity to build long working relationships with clients throughout their lifetimes and the ability to adapt and change to clients needs as required.’
Mills started her career in Jersey at Volaw Trust in 1997 as a trust administrator. In 1999, she moved to Bedell Trust working as a trust officer. Moving up the ranks, in 2005 she became a manager of trust administration at Bank of Singapore’s trust company in Jersey and a director of business entities. She was promoted in 2010 to executive director, a position she held for seven years, with oversight of both administration and new business.
Throughout her career, she’s gained a proven track record in business development, client relations, management of risk and corporate governance and improving business process efficiencies. She has also obtained strong team leadership and management skills.
Hawksford is an international corporate, private client and funds business.
