JTC appoints Dean Blackburn as Chief Commercial Officer

11th Aug 2020

JTC is delighted to announce that Dean Blackburn has been appointed to the role of Chief Commercial Officer. Dean takes over the post from Tony Whitney, who has retired from all executive roles at JTC after an outstanding 23 years’ service with the Group.

Dean has over 30 years’ international experience, with an extensive career working within the financial services sector in key jurisdictions including the UK, Channel Islands, Asia, South Africa and the UAE. He joined JTC 18 months ago from his previous role with HSBC, where he led the growth of its global HNW expatriate wealth management business as well as their Channel Islands and Isle of Man retail banking and wealth management business.

In the role of Chief Commercial Officer, Dean will work closely with both of JTC’s well-established Divisions, Institutional Client Services (ICS) and Private Client Services (PCS), as well as specifically overseeing the growth of the Group’s Treasury and Banking services; expanding the commercial internal audit function, which helps JTC’s global network of 23 offices to maximise service levels and efficiency; as well as overseeing the company’s Group Development function, which drives inorganic growth through acquisitions.

In addition to his extensive industry experience, Dean is an Ordinary Member of the Hong Kong Securities and Investment Institute (MHKSI), a member of the London Institute for Banking and Finance (MLIBF), a Professional Member of the International Compliance Association (MICA) and a member of the Institute of Directors (IoD).

JTC CEO Nigel Le Quesne said:

“Since joining the JTC family Dean has already played a key part in developing and delivering our growth strategies. In the role of Chief Commercial Officer he will oversee a team that supports both organic and inorganic growth as well as helping drive and deliver efficiency improvements across the Group. I very much look forward to working closely with Dean as he embarks on this next chapter of his JTC career.”

Commenting on his appointment, Dean said: “I am delighted to be working with Nigel and the JTC Group Holdings Board in this new role to provide greater support and focus on the delivery of JTC’s future growth and wider strategic plans over the coming years.”
