JTC has appointed Dean Blackburn to the role of Group Head of Institutional Client Services (ICS).
Having been acting as Interim Group Head of ICS since October, Dean will now take over the position permanently with immediate effect. He will lead the Division, which provides an extensive range of fund and corporate services to institutional clients, on an ambitious growth journey, supported by a global team of over 900 people, spanning sixteen offices across nine jurisdictions.
Dean joined JTC in 2019, initially as Group Director in the CEO office and then, from July 2020, as Chief Commercial Officer. He was promoted to JTC’s Group Holdings Board in 2022 and since then has been instrumental in driving innovation and growth strategies across both the ICS and Private Client Services (PCS) Divisions, including supporting the commercial integration of JTC’s acquisitions, and the development of its banking and treasury services.
With more than 30 years’ global experience, Dean has an extensive track record in sophisticated financial services, including banking, working within jurisdictions including the UK, Channel Islands, Asia, South Africa and the UAE.
Nigel Le Quesne, CEO, JTC, said:
“Our ICS Division has developed and performed strongly in recent years, with revenues growing by 59.7% in our last reporting period (H1 2022) and Dean has already played a significant part in that success. I know that Dean is excited about continuing to evolve our global ICS platform to capture future opportunities whilst at the same time continuing to work closely with the senior leadership team across the Group to help us achieve JTC’s shared objectives.”
Commenting on his appointment, Dean added:
“JTC has considerably evolved its proposition for the institutional market over recent years, thanks to organic growth and a series of high quality acquisitions that have added new capabilities and scale, as well as driving focused growth in key markets, including the US, Ireland and the UK. I’m looking forward to working with colleagues across our global network to capitalise on opportunities and ensure that JTC becomes the fund and corporate services provider of choice.”
