Ipes, one of Europe’s leading Private Equity fund administrators, have strengthened the management team in its Jersey office with three senior appointments, Claire Kelly, Debbie Quemard and Jackie Kostyniuk.
Claire Kelly joins Ipes Jersey as Compliance Manager following a ten year career in the Island’s finance industry. Claire is a Chartered Accountant with a strong funds background having worked previously as a Fund Administrator and a Fund Accountant before embarking on a career in compliance. She says, “Joining Ipes Jersey at this time is exciting as the Company is rapidly expanding in a regulatory environment that is also constantly changing. My role provides me with scope to add value to develop the business.” The Jersey Financial Services Commission approved Claire’s appointment on 4 November.
Debbie Quemard and Jackie Kostyniuk, who have both been with Ipes since 2008 have each been promoted to Head of Section.
Debbie, who joined Ipes Jersey in 2008, has worked in the finance industry for 11 years as qualified accountant. Whilst working for Ipes she has gained her Jersey Fund Association’s Certificate in Fund Administration. Debbie’s team is responsible for the administration of a portfolio of multi–jurisdictional private equity funds.
Jackie is also a qualified accountant and has over 15 years experience in the accounting sector with the last four being spent working on Private Equity structures. Jackie is responsible for the supervision of the fund accounting function for a number of private equity, listed and property funds.
Ipes Jersey was established in January 2008 and has quickly developed local and international business relationships and a solid client base. This has enabled it to achieve substantial growth in a short time, despite global economic instability.
Andrew Mason, Managing Director Ipes Jersey says, “We are pleased to welcome Claire to the team and congratulate Debbie and Jackie on their promotions. Ipes’s ability to attract, develop and retain high quality personnel is fundamental to our continued success and these appointments underpin our future growth plans as we look to build on our success to date.”
