Congratulations to our Hon Secretary Rupert Pleasant (7313) who has been appointed as the new CEO of Guernsey Finance. Rupert has spent nearly 30 years in the private wealth industry and has lived in a number of Guernsey Finance’s key markets including London, Hong Kong, Cape Town, Zurich and Geneva. He has held a number of senior roles including being Managing Director of a major Trust company in Switzerland. Rupert looks forward to leading the excellent team into new territory over the coming years, especially in these challenging times.
Mike Martel (4952) has just published his latest project on The Fallen in World War 2 in the Roy Honey Archives which ties in with the 75th anniversary of Liberation Day – it is in the archive under “Books”.
Rob Fearis (6528) has been appointed as the new CEO of listed financial services group PraxisIFM. He has been part of the business since 1992 and was founder shareholder. His expertise covers a wide variety of structures for private and corporate clients and regulated financial services businesses.
Sam Culverwell (11088) will be riding for U23 team Trinity Racing in the coming season. The squad will target some of the most prestigious races for “espoirs” across Europe. This is an excellent stepping stone for a possible place in a World Tour team.
Nev (4434) and Elizabeth Brouard celebrated their Diamond Wedding Anniversary (60 years) in March 2020.
