Boston Limited, a leading local fiduciary, family office, and professional services group, has announced the appointment of Kerry Smith as Senior Manager – Projects Analyst.
The newly created role is designed to allow Boston to expand upon its analytical capacities, and positions the firm well in order to respond to tax and regulatory issues likely to affect its international portfolio of clients managed from offices in both the Isle of Man and Malta.
Kerry started her career in 2001 as a Regulator with the Financial Supervision Commission. In 2007 Kerry joined IOMA Group where she spent 6 years putting her technical knowledge into commercial practise as Compliance Manager for the fiduciary business, and later as Group Company Secretary. Coupled with her extensive industry experience, Kerry is a Business Studies graduate and qualified as a Chartered Secretary in 2004. Such experience has given her an invaluable insight into compliance, regulation and corporate governance, areas that she will continue to focus on within Boston.
Kerry will also fulfil a Company Secretary role and is responsible for leading projects on tax compliance and reporting, monitoring risk, and delivering FATCA compliant services and solutions.
Commenting on Kerry’s appointment, Phil Knop, Tax Director at Boston stated: “Kerry’s appointment is further evidence of Boston’s commitment to recruiting the very best people in our industry. This is a newly created role in recognition of the changing face of business and the many challenges we now face from, for example, the UK, US and the EU. The demands placed on our industry from the likes of FATCA are ever increasing and to recruit an individual of Kerry’s calibre and experience to tackle the associated tax and compliance risks is a real coup for Boston.”
On her appointment, Kerry commented that she is “enthused and excited by the opportunity to join Boston Limited at a time when it continues to expand and develop. With important regulatory changes on the horizon I am pleased to be part of a forward thinking team. This role gives me the perfect opportunity to capitalise upon what I have learned over the years as well as apply new ideas to help shape Boston’s future.”
