Guernsey-based consultancy business Collas Crill Compliance has expanded its team with the appointment of new Compliance Consultant, Neil Black, as it continues to offer its services to a growing client base.
The business opened its doors in November 2019 in recognition of the need for broader compliance support to complement the work of Collas Crill's market-leading risk and regulatory legal team.
Collas Crill Compliance's services encompass governance, risk and compliance to guide clients safely through what is an increasingly complex regulatory environment. Clients include financial services businesses regulated in Guernsey and Jersey as well as other businesses with compliance obligations such as estate agents, accountants and finance brokers.
In this newly created role, Neil will provide governance, risk, compliance (GRC) and anti-money laundering advice to clients, as well as carrying out project-based work.
Neil has worked in the Guernsey financial services industry for two decades. Prior to joining Collas Crill Compliance, he was the Compliance Officer and Money Laundering Compliance Officer of a Guernsey-licensed fund administration company where he undertook GRC and company secretarial duties for the company and its clients. Before that, Neil was an executive director of a Guernsey-licensed designated manager which provides administration services to Guernsey-domiciled fund structures.
Executive Director of Collas Crill Compliance Sandra Lawrence, who has spearheaded the consultancy's growth, said: 'I'm delighted to welcome Neil to the team, who I have no doubt will help us continue to build on our achievements to date, and will quickly become an invaluable member of the team.
'Neil brings with him a broad range of practical experience in senior GRC roles, and his outlook and work ethic upholds our high standards of client service and delivery.'
Neil said: 'I am thrilled to join Collas Crill Compliance at this exciting stage of its growth.
'To work alongside Sandra provides me with a great opportunity to further broaden my experience in GRC, an area I am incredibly passionate about and I'm very much looking forward to contributing to the company's continuing success.'
