We have a growing number of members across the Channel Islands.
We have a strong presence in the Channel Islands and there are thriving local communities in Guernsey and Jersey. ICAS members regularly meet up to keep in touch and to host networking events. Why not meet up with fellow members and help to further enhance a leading professional community?
If you are in the Channel Islands, why not get in touch with one of the community chairs? They are a point of contact for member enquiries and help to support the ICAS brand overseas.
Roy McGregor (Guernsey Chair)
Roy qualified with Deloitte Haskins & Sells (now PwC) in their Glasgow office in 1983 and shortly thereafter transferred with the firm to Hong Kong then subsequently Singapore and Bangkok before leaving the firm to jointly head up Deutsche Morgan Grenfell's corporate advisory business in Thailand.
On returning to the UK after 12 years in Asia, Roy joined Coutts Group in a senior risk role before moving into a business line role to run the UK bank's tax, trust and IFA activities. Leaving Coutts following a restructuring around the RBS acquisition of NatWest, Roy joined Societe General/Hambros as a board director for 4 years. Credit Suisse approached him to take on the COO role in the UK private bank which he held for 2 years prior to moving with them to run their Channel Island franchise from which he retired at the end of 2016.
Throughout his career Roy has focussed on financial services and has worked with large and small financial services groups across the world both as clients and as a senior manager.
Chris Simpson (Jersey Chair)
Chris qualified in Glasgow in 1982 and has spent most of his career in the airline industry, most recently with regional airline Flybe. He is passionate about all things aeronautical; a keen private pilot, he recently qualified to fly floatplanes.
Chris has been chair of the Jersey Community since it was formed in 2013; he is confident the Community will go from strength to strength as the number of CAs training, living and working in Jersey continues to grow.
