JTC Group has made two senior appointments in Jersey within its technology and marketing operations.
Adam Jeffries, who was previously Global Head of IT Operations at Appleby, has joined as Chief Information Officer and David Vieira, who was Head of Marketing at Jersey Finance, has been appointed Group Head of Business Development and Marketing.
Adam Jeffries, who has 16 years’ experience in the technology sector within the financial services industry, has been recruited to develop an IT strategy at the JTC Group. He will also head up a team to implement IT changes which are essential in meeting the strategic and operational objectives of the Group as a whole.

‘In order to deliver our strategic objectives, it is important that we strengthen our senior management team with key appointments and Adam and David are both significant additions to that team. Their arrival adds impetus to our development in international target markets and they will play an important part in meeting the expansion plans of the Group.’
