Collas Crill chairman appointed

Collas Crill has appointed Nigel Vooght as the new Chairman of the Collas Crill Group where his primary role will be to oversee the growth and governance of the firm's seven offices.

A key figure in financial services in both the Channel Islands and internationally, Nigel was a partner in PWC, working in its financial services sector for the last 20 years. As PWC's global financial leader, in the last eight years he supported the company in doubling the size of its practice.

Prior to this, Nigel was in the firm's business recovery and insolvency practice, during which time he helped turn around and grow many companies.

Nigel replaces Alex Rodger who has been chairman of the Collas Crill Group since 2008.

Group Managing Partner Jason Romer said: "Nigel is a fantastic addition to Collas Crill and we anticipate benefitting hugely from his extensive experience in building client relationships, sharing knowledge across networks and focusing our resources where it will really make a difference.

"I would also like to thank Alex for the value he has brought to Collas Crill. His knowledge and judgment demonstrates the importance of an external influence on the leadership of the firm. Alex has helped us to achieve a lot during his time with Collas Crill and we are excited to work with Nigel as we continue to move forward."

Nigel said: “I am excited to join Collas Crill’s board as its chairman to help continue the successful growth of firm. I am keen to bring my expertise and financial services background to support and oversea the development of such a fast-paced and dynamic business as it continues to go from strength to strength."
