We are delighted to share the news that both Operations Services Director, Chandelle Newcombe and Manager, Gabrielle Skelley have been named in the prestigious eprivateclient Channel Islands Top 35 Under 35 - Women list.

The Channel Islands Top 35 Under 35 initiative is designed to identify, recognise, promote and introduce the rising stars of the Private Client practitioner community in the Channel Islands.

Chandelle joined Estera's (now Ocorian) Private Client team in Jersey as assistant administrator in 2011. Her career development within the firm saw her promoted to administrator in 2013, the completion of her ICSA qualification and in the same year winning the 2015 ICSA Administrator of the Year Award. She has since been promoted to Operations Services Director.

Gabrielle also works within our Private Client team and recently took a two year secondment to our regulatory and tax reporting team, where she became an essential adviser to all business lines on FATCA and CRS reporting requirements. Gabrielle returned to the Private Client division six months ago and since that time has supported the whole team with FATCA and CRS issues and reporting whilst managing a complex portfolio of client cases.

Commenting on the duo's inclusion, Global Private Clients Service Line Leader, Nick Cawley said: "This is terrific news. The Private Client sector is always evolving and that requires professionals within the industry to continually develop their skills and Gabrielle and Chandelle have both made great strides in their careers as a result. I look forward to seeing them continue to grow under the stewardship of Ocorian. Congratulations to both!"
