First Names Group has promoted Andrew De La Haye to the role of deputy managing director of the firm’s Jersey trust unit.

Haye earlier had a two-year spell as the client services director at the group. He joined First Names after the takeover of Seymour Trust in 2014, where he served as a managing director.

Prior to joining First Names, Haye held board roles at institutional and independent trust businesses.

First Names (Jersey) managing director Ben Newman said: “As a business we have experienced a period of significant expansion over the last few years, however, we remain true to our unique culture and are committed to investing in the people, systems and processes needed to support our strategic objectives.

“I am sure Andrew and I will make a great team and I'm looking forward to working closely with him as we take the business forward.”
