International corporate, private client and funds business Hawksford has appointed Peter Cheesley as business development director.
Cheesley (pictured) joins from Nautilus Trust, where he was head of business development.
In his new role, which focuses on corporate, private client and fund services, he will be responsible for developing new business opportunities for Hawksford’s international offices in targeted regions.

“Peter’s appointment comes at a pivotal time for Hawksford as we continue our expansion plans in our core markets. He will be instrumental in helping to drive the strategic direction of the company, whilst building existing and new relationships with global clients, their advisers and professional services contacts,” says Michael Powell, Hawksford director.
