12/02/2019 News Team

Jersey Finance has appointed Joe Moynihan as its new chief executive, effective 18 February 2019.

An experienced financial services professional, Mr Moynihan replaces Geoff Cook, who is leaving after twelve years in the role to "transition to a non-executive career in financial services as a board director and adviser".

Currently an independent board director and consultant, Mr Cook is working as a consultant at eprivateclient Top Offshore Law Firm Mourant, a role which is "one of a small number of anchor relationships for [Mr Cook] and will become a platform from which he will continue to build a portfolio of other advisory and non-executive positions," according to the firm.

Mr Moynihan has spent the majority of his executive career with AIB, latterly as the chief executive of the Jersey and Isle of Man offices. He then spent nearly four years with the Government of Jersey as Director of Financial Services. More recently, he was chief executive of RAK International Corporate Centre in the UAE and has acted as a consultant both in Jersey and overseas. 

He is also a previous chair of the Jersey Bankers Association.

Gunther Thumann, chairman, Jersey Finance, added: “Joe has considerable experience in financial services gained both here in Jersey and in markets around the world, and benefits from having had both an industry and government perspective, giving him an excellent understanding of our stakeholders and the environment Jersey’s finance industry exists in.

“In his various roles, Joe has always been a keen supporter of Jersey Finance and there’s no doubt that his strong connections in Jersey and overseas, together with his strategic insight into international financial services, will be vital as we look to continue to provide innovative solutions and certainty to investors. Joe will undoubtedly add to the existing strengths of our executive team while his appointment gives us and the industry we serve some welcome continuity.”
