Beginning her career with BDO in auditing after graduating from the University of East Anglia in Accounting and Law, Belinda progressed herself through gaining experience in both financial and commercial sectors. This varied expertise has been of great benefit to the development and co-ordination of her cross-jurisdictional client teams at the Group.
Originally from Kent, Belinda ended up in impromptu interviews during a weekend visit to Guernsey to see friends. This accordingly steered her move to Guernsey where she began the management of two significant Private Equity clients and their numerous fund structures for Northern Trust. One year later Belinda ran into Director Rob Jones during a business event and after hearing his passion for the Group along with its impressive successes, she made her next key career move. Fast forward and Belinda is now an integral part of our Corporate Services team in Guernsey as Associate Director.
Belinda has also helped in the development of vital product processes and with the testing of our new corporate services system, commenting on our tailored approach Belinda remarks, “We look at each client as unique and tailor a bespoke service through a two way partnership. Attention to detail is chief in the Aztec Group and this is evident in our impressive statistics”.
“Belinda’s commitment to our client relationships is second-to-none. Her accounting background, combined with strong attention to detail mean that clients trust and value Belinda’s input, and her commitment to excellent client service is reflected in her team”. – Rob Jones, Director.
Philanthropic in nature, Belinda’s caring personality has extended not only to those within the Group but also outwardly, volunteering her time alongside fellow Group colleagues to ‘Every Child Our Future’. The charity helps to ensure Guernsey school children each has an equal opportunity to progress their reading capabilities. Belinda enjoys being a part of the progression of those around her, whether that be the children or her colleagues. This inclusive culture is a value which Belinda is passionate about in the Group; “Nobody is forgotten and we don’t underestimate the importance of investing in our staff, whether that is through soft skills training, professional qualifications or our renowned staff events. Each person is valued and appreciated”.
Belinda is a member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA).
