GoldMoney has expanded its senior team with the appointment of Meryl Le Feuvre as Marketing Manager and Paul Woodland, Head of Customer Relations.
GoldMoney Chief Executive Officer, Geoff Turk said that, 'We are a well established global company with over 22,000 customers, but it's important to continually develop the business. The appointments of Meryl and Paul will support our future marketing and customer acquisition strategy.'
Meryl joins GoldMoney from RBS International in Jersey where she had been PR Manager. Prior to this she worked in a number of marketing management roles within the UK after graduating from the University of Manchester.
Geoff commented: 'Meryl will have oversight for the marketing and business development team and will help drive our continued expansion. Her experience in the finance and professional services industry will compliment our innovative online proposition.'
Meryl added, 'I'm very excited by the growth possibilities at GoldMoney. We have a pioneering e-commerce solution dealing in the world's oldest form of currency, gold. I look forward to enabling individuals and institutions globally to preserve their wealth through diversification into precious metals. The recent inclusion of gold bullion in the UK's Self Investment Personal Pension Schemes is just one example of how its investment qualities are being recognised.'
Meryl has an MPhil in Business Administration and a BSc (Hons) in International Management with French.
Geoff Turk said Paul's role reflects the importance they places on ensuring their customers are satisfied, 'He is a results driven, energetic and enthusiastic manager and the relationship management team are looking forward to working with him.'

He has also been an Area Manager for RBS Private Bank in the UK where he led a highly experienced team of private bankers whose main responsibility was to acquire new business and build effective relationships with internal and external stakeholders.
Paul is looking forward to heading up GoldMoney's Relationship Management team, 'Customer care is the core of any business. It's not just about bringing in new customers, but about ensuring your existing clients aren't just content with the service they are receiving, but feel they are being listened to. I shall be utilizing my previous experience in customer facing roles to help drive GoldMoney's relationships internally and externally.'

Historically gold has been an excellent way to preserve purchasing power over long periods of time. For example, today it takes almost the same amount of gold to buy a barrel of crude oil as it did 60 years ago which is in stark contrast to the price of oil in terms of national currencies such as the US dollar.
GoldMoney is regulated by the Jersey Financial Services Commission and complies with Jersey's anti-money laundering laws and regulations. GoldMoney has established industry-leading governance policies and procedures to protect customers' assets with independent audit reporting every 3 months by two leading audit firms.
