Mourant International Finance Administration has appointed Matthew Wood as managing director of its Guernsey office.
Wood (pictured) has 12 years' experience in the finance industry and joined the firm's Guernsey office in 2004 as head of accounting. His time at Mourant has also included spells in its London office with responsibility for the firm's European private equity business development and in Dubai where he oversaw business development in the Gulf region.
Returning to Guernsey, Wood will now assume responsibility for managing the growth plans of the Guernsey office as well as overseeing client service teams.
Iain Stokes, group managing director at Mourant International Finance Administration, says: 'We are delighted to welcome Matthew back to the island in his new role as managing director. Matthew will be pivotal in driving the business forward and the strong contacts and experience he has built up since joining Mourant in 2004 will play a major part in expanding the business.'
A member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales, Wood previously worked in financial services assurance with PricewaterhouseCoopers and fund accounting with Butterfield Fund Services.
