Partner Adrian Pilcher TEP has been appointed as Chair of the Gibraltar branch of The Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners (STEP), at last week's AGM.
STEP is the global professional association for practitioners who specialise in trusts, estates, family inheritance and succession planning. With more than 21,000 members worldwide, STEP sets and upholds high professional standards, informs public policy, promotes education, and connects practitioners globally to share knowledge and best practice.
With decades of experience, Adrian is recognised as a leader in the industry, representing both individual and corporate clients on a broad range of estate and trusts related matters.
On being appointed as Chair, Adrian expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to contribute to STEP's evolution and progress both at a local level and as part of the larger STEP family. He added, "I very much look forward to working with my fellow committee members Wayne Fortunato, Abigail Cornelio and Natasha Pizzarello to enhance STEP's position in Gibraltar, as well as to enhance Gibraltar's position in the wider international STEP community. I am grateful to the outgoing committee members for their fantastic work and their dedication to the branch over the years, in particular former Chairman Peter Isola, who founded the Gibraltar Branch, and Secretary Raquel Moss".
Peter Isola said: "I am delighted that Adrian has been elected as Chair. He brings a wealth of expertise and experience to the role. I'd also like to congratulate Wayne, Abigail and Natasha who were appointed as Deputy Chair, Secretary and Treasurer respectively and a special thank you to Raquel Moss for all her work as Secretary over many years whilst I have been Chairman"
