Woodbrook appoints director of legal and corporate services ahead of planned investment in Ireland
Financial advisory and corporate services firm Woodbrook Group has appointed Mann Vergan as director of legal and corporate services.
In his new role, Mr Vergan will work closely with Woodbrook’s Irish CEO Michael Doherty in identifying and laying the groundwork for a series of planned mergers and acquisitions in the corporate services and wealth division sectors.
The appointment comes ahead of the group’s planned €100m investment in Ireland.
The Irish investment includes plans to create up to 1,500 new jobs in the South East of the country over the next four years.
The group is due to hold initial talks with IDA representatives with a view to setting up a new life assurance company here over the coming weeks.
Canadian national Mr Vergan brings a wealth of two decades’ experience working for some of the world’s most prestigious law firms, both onshore and offshore, to his new role, a statement from the group said.
"We have been very calculated in our growth in 2018, culminating with our announcement to list on the NASDAQ, the world’s preeminent stock exchange," Mr Doherty said.
"Now with our acquisitions and the outstanding new members such as Mann who have joined the team, the future is extremely positive and we will continue our strong growth through 2019."
