Skipton International has made two senior appointments at its helm. Significant business growth over the last few years has seen the need to broaden the leadership team and drive the continued expansion of the company.

Kaz Veljovic has been appointed as Chief People Officer, with Pete Turner joining as Chief Operating Officer.

Jersey-based Mrs Veljovic brings substantial experience from her senior roles at the States of Jersey, Standard Bank, and Citi Group. She has over eight years of senior HR and EDI leadership experience across complex, multinational organisations in the public and private sectors.

She commented:

“My mission is to empower our people as the company grows. As CPO I'll lead the creation and delivery of our people strategy in alignment with business objectives to continue to make Skipton a great place to work.”

Guernsey-based Mr Turner has a demonstrated history of working in the financial services industry, primarily with the HSBC Group across the UK and Channel Islands. Highly regarded in the industry across the Channel Islands, he is recognised as having exceptional people and leadership skills.

He said:

“I am delighted to join Skipton International and look forward to working with my fellow leadership colleagues to navigate the complexities of today’s financial services sector during a time of organisational growth.”
