HIGHVERN has appointed highly experienced legal and private wealth specialist Tom Mylott as Head of Operations in its Cayman team.
Tom will draw on his experience as a dual qualified lawyer and trust director to drive operational and strategic growth for the business. HIGHVERN’s focus, following the acquisition of Genesis Trust and Corporate Services Ltd. last year, is on establishing its brand presence in the region and expanding its international reach across multiple jurisdictions.
Tom joins HIGHVERN having spent more than 20 years in the industry, working at the highest level across law and fiduciary firms. Over the years Tom has managed a number of private client legal teams, most recently having acted as a Partner and Head of Private Wealth for an international law firm.
“HIGHVERN’s recent growth and expansion coupled with its excellent, meant I was fully aware of its high-calibre client base and service offering. It was what drew me to the business,” said Tom. “I was very impressed by the group’s client-centric approach and the overall ethos of the business, which they are building on here in Cayman.
“It’s a really exciting time to be joining the team; I’m looking forward to playing a role in the continued brand evolution and implementing the excellent cross-jurisdictional best practices the group excels at to streamline internal processes.”
Roger Priaulx, Country Head of HIGHVERN’s Cayman office, said: “Tom is a brilliant addition to the team and a key appointment for our growth strategy. The Head of Operations role will further unify the Cayman team with the wider group, allowing us to work more collaboratively and build on the existing high standard of service we provide to our clients. Tom’s leadership experience along with his analytical and strategic mind, plus his broad knowledge of the industry, made him the ideal candidate for the job.”
