Collas Crill Compliance Limited, a Guernsey-based consultancy business, has expanded its team with the appointment of Keith McAndrew as Compliance Consultant to support its growing client base.
Collas Crill Compliance's services encompass governance, risk and compliance (GRC) to guide clients safely through what is an increasingly complex regulatory environment.
As Consultant Keith will conduct independent audits, review and update clients' regulatory compliance frameworks, ensuring alignment with legal and regulatory requirements and hold prescribed roles.
This involves identifying and mitigating risks, offering hands-on experience, pragmatic advice and commercial acumen. Keith will also contribute to enhancing the current training offering, allowing him to showcase his experience as a qualified, practical and efficient practitioner.
Keith has worked in the financial services industry in Guernsey for more than eight years and has spent a number of years working in the Enforcement Division at the GFSC.
He joins Collas Crill from a leading offshore fund administrator where he was an Associate Director of its legal, risk and compliance team.
Keith said: 'I am so pleased to have the fantastic opportunity of working with such an esteemed team of highly talented individuals in an environment that is both professional and welcoming.'
'I look forward to working with new and existing clients of Collas Crill Compliance, in the delivery of a top tier compliance consultancy service as we continue to grow.'
Sandra Lawrence, Executive Director of Collas Crill Compliance, has been on the forefront of the consultancy's growth.
She said: 'Keith brings with him invaluable experience across the spectrum of GRC. Keith's calm and pragmatic approach avoids unnecessary complexity. With an impressive academic and practical background, Keith's well-rounded expertise complements our strong offering. I am thrilled to welcome Keith to the team. '
Collas Crill Compliance Limited was established by Sandra in November 2019, in recognition of the need for broader GRC support to complement the work of Collas Crill's market-leading risk and regulatory legal team.
Clients include financial services businesses regulated in Guernsey and Jersey as well as other businesses with compliance obligations such as real estate agents and personal fiduciary licensees.
