Marbral Advisory, the largest independent change management practice in the Channel Islands, has created two new leadership roles in response to the growing demand for its expertise in the British Isles and Europe.
Leonie McCrann has been appointed CEO for the British Isles and Alexsis Wintour, founder, will now move to the new role of CEO for Europe.
The new leadership roles will allow Marbral Advisory to continue to focus on the Channel Islands, whilst supporting an increasing demand for its services in the Isle of Man and the UK. In addition, the new European role is an opportunity for the company to build on its existing experience in Luxembourg and Malta, whilst developing the business further into new markets and sectors.
Leonie joined Marbral Advisory in 2015 as a Principal. Since joining the company, Leonie has led several transformational change programmes for clients across a wide range of industry sectors and has developed digital, cybersecurity, and regulatory change service lines to support their business requirements.
Commenting on her new role, Leonie said, “My focus is to continue to support our clients through change and build on our success in the British Isles, which saw significant growth last year.” She added, “Our growth has been driven by our clients, particularly in the areas of digital and data-driven change. We see 2018 as ‘The Year of Data’, especially with the European data protection rules undergoing the biggest change since the 1990’s with the introduction of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May, plus an increased demand for cybersecurity measures".
Alexsis Wintour, founded Marbral Advisory with Martin Bralsford, Non-Executive Director, four years ago. Since then, it has grown from a change and project management provider in Jersey, to a full-service change practice; specialising in digital, people, cultural, and organisational change. Its independent change professionals are working across the key financial centres in the British Isles and more recently, in Europe, for clients operating across multiple jurisdictions.
Alexsis explained: “At Marbral, we recognise that organisations continue to evolve and adapt in response to technological, regulatory, cultural, and operational drivers, to remain competitive. Digital change is not restricted by geographical borders, and my new role will give our business an opportunity to grow in Europe. We have seen a heightened demand for our expertise in change driven by digital, disruptive technologies, compliance with regulation, and mergers and acquisitions."
