JTC is delighted to announce that Wendy Holley, Chief Operating Officer, has been appointed as Executive Director of the Group, joining the PLC Board.
On the PLC Board, Wendy will have a particular focus on ensuring the development of JTC’s well-established shared ownership model and in overseeing global employee representation at a senior level.
Wendy joined JTC in 2008 and has over 25 years’ experience in financial services operations. In her role as Chief Operating Officer, Wendy is responsible for evaluating and developing the operational strategy of the Group to ensure it builds the operational capabilities to support its growth prospects and deliver its financial targets. A significant part of her role includes acquisition integration, an important aspect of JTC’s ongoing growth strategy.
Commenting on the appointment, Nigel Le Quesne, CEO, JTC PLC, said:
“Wendy joined JTC over ten years ago and has been an integral part of the senior management team as we have grown the business from a regional player into a global business. Our well-invested and scalable operating platform underpins our organic and inorganic growth strategies and Wendy has overseen the progressive development of our operational capabilities. She is also a leading advocate of our shared ownership culture and will help the Board to even better connect with all our people, across our global network of 20 offices.”
Mike Liston, Chairman, JTC PLC, also commented:
“I am delighted to welcome Wendy to the Board. She has an exemplary track record both at JTC and in the wider sector and has been a key part of the Company’s success. Her skills and experience will be invaluable to the Board and in particular make her an ideal candidate to facilitate employee representation with the Board, an approach that we recognise as being of increasing importance under the UK Corporate Governance Code and one that very much aligns with JTC’s well-developed stakeholder culture. While this appointment further strengthens the JTC Board, we are mindful of corporate governance best practice and will actively seek to appoint an additional non-executive director in the near future.”
