New Appointment at Cayman National
John Rimmer is one of the island’s foremost trust lawyers, who now runs his own niche private client practice. He started his legal career in the UK, working as a solicitor for some of the larger law firms before moving to the Isle of Man in 1998. He joined one of the international law firms which steered him to become a Partner in charge of their Private Clients business. John also writes articles for various industry related publications and is an author of textbooks in relation to trusts, foundations, and international succession. He is a member on the Board of the Hospice Care (IOM).
Nigel Gautrey, Managing Director of Cayman National’s Isle of Man operations commented, “We are delighted to welcome John onto both the Boards of the Isle of Man companies. He will bring a genuine fiduciary non-executive perspective to the Boards; someone who has a very strong knowledge of UK taxation and wide experience of general private client legal matters. John will add greatly to the overall management and oversight of risk and will also provide strategic direction and guidance to our existing private client book of business.”
John adds, “I am both pleased and excited to join Cayman National, and look forward to working with Board members at Cayman National and engaging with the management teams. As I join, this will be a challenging time for all businesses both domestically and internationally, but I am encouraged and keen to contribute to the initiatives planned to move both the Bank and the Trust company businesses forward.”
