GoldMoney has promoted Financial Controller Peter Wright, to the position of Chief Financial Officer, with immediate effect. Mr Wright joined the company's head office in Jersey six years ago as Financial Controller, before being promoted to Finance Director in 2008.
Chief Executive Officer Geoff Turk said Mr Wright's promotion is excellent news for GoldMoney: 'Pete has proved himself to be a competent and insightful financial manager, helping to guide GoldMoney through a time of rapid expansion and global diversification. I am delighted that he will now consolidate his position with us as we continue our strategic development.'
Prior to joining GoldMoney.com Mr Wright worked as an Auditor and Financial controller across various industries in the UK having qualified as a certified accountant. He moved to Jersey in 2002, originally working for the Guiton Group and then Mourant (Private Wealth) before joining GoldMoney.
Mr Wright says it has been an interesting and exciting few years: 'I have thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of helping develop GoldMoney as a company over the past six years, and I am really looking forward to further diversifying our position in what is a vibrant and cosmopolitan market. One of the most pleasurable parts of my job has been working with the team here who are not only thoroughly professional, but also very supportive.'
Mr Wright is a keen runner in his spare time, and was sponsored earlier this year by GoldMoney to run the toughest foot race on earth - the Marathon Des Sables. He raised over £8,500 for local charities during training and in sponsorship for the race. Mr Wright is now working on a training schedule to swim the Channel.
