The International Stock Exchange (TISE) has made several promotions and a new appointment as it seeks to build on the success of a milestone 25th anniversary year in 2023.

As of 1 January 2024, Jersey-based Claire Totty has been promoted to Senior Markets Analyst, while in Guernsey Vaughn Botes has been promoted to Senior Private Markets Executive and Simon Bradley has been promoted to Analyst.

Also in Guernsey, TISE has appointed Nick Jenkins as Chief Technology Officer. Mr Jenkins has nearly 35 years’ experience working within IT, supporting the financial services industry in Guernsey and internationally in London, Amsterdam, and Bangalore. He joined TISE’s IT team in January 2023 and this new role will see him focus on shaping and executing the technological strategy of the group, primarily driving the shift to new, cutting edge systems.

Cees Vermaas, CEO at TISE, said: “These promotions are richly deserved and reflect the significant progression and unwavering commitment of Claire, Vaughn and Simon within their roles last year. I am also delighted to welcome Nick into his new role as he brings significant experience of building and managing teams across the technology stack and his strategic leadership will be hugely valuable as we overhaul our operating model to embrace emerging technologies.”

Last year, celebrating its 25th anniversary year, TISE had its fourth best year ever with some 850 new listings on its public market despite the continued adverse macro-economic conditions, and launched a new, innovative private markets offering, TISE Private Markets, where the first client to join was the locally headquartered garden centre group, Blue Diamond Limited.

Mr Vermaas added: “The dedication and expertise of the team has been the foundation for the development of the business during the last few years and these promotions and appointment reflect our continued commitment to deliver diversification and growth. This is a hugely exciting time for the organisation, and I look forward to working with the whole team as we aim to achieve more milestones and further successes during 2024.”

TISE has 37 employees operating across Dublin, Guernsey, the Isle of Man, Jersey and London.
