DOUGLAS, Isle of Man, Feb. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The ICM Group board of directors has announced the appointment of a high profile non-executive chair, Jo Haigh, as of 01 January 2014. Winner of the 2013 Sunday Times Non-Executive Director of the Year award, in association with Peel Hunt, Jo Haigh is a highly experienced businesswoman and a regular presenter for the Institute of Directors.

Based on the Isle of Man, with associated offices in London, Jersey, Antibes and Monaco, the ICM Group is a successful, privately owned corporate service provider, which specialises in wealth management solutions, yachting and aviation. Founded in 1984, the Group has grown steadily over the years and now has 70 employees.

Mark Byrne, ICM Group director specialising in aviation and wealth management, told us why the time was right to make the appointment:

"Even with the economic turbulence encountered since 2008 we have enjoyed continuous growth and, with confidence returning, we believe that our expansion will continue. Although growth is always welcome, it inevitably comes with increased complexity and new challenges. We feel that we have reached the next stage of the company's development and recognise that we need to enhance our ability to think strategically whilst remaining focussed.

Jo's background and experience, together with her independence as a non-executive, will ensure that our assumptions are tested and our actions are timely and appropriate. We were overjoyed when Jo accepted our invitation and we look forward to working with her. We have found a world-class entrepreneur who will make a huge difference to how we run and expand our business."

Jo Haigh recently launched her fifth book, The keys to the boardroom: How to get there and how to stay there. With five best-selling books to her name, 300 companies bought and sold and over 40 non-executive roles, Jo Haigh knows her subject. Jo told us:

"Over the years I have been very fortunate to hold a number of prestigious roles as non-executive director. This is my second chair position and I was flattered to be asked to join ICM for whom I have massive respect. I most enjoy working with growing and ambitious businesses and ICM is no exception. I have already spent three very productive days with the board and the senior management team and I am hugely impressed by their skills and enthusiasm to continue to build an even better business."

This new appointment comes as the ICM Group celebrates its 30th anniversary and prepares for a big move to new headquarters in Douglas. With a presence in London, Monaco, Jersey and Antibes, and contacts all over the globe, the ICM Group of companies is well placed to grow and expand into new markets whilst retaining its reputation for looking after its clients, sector knowledge and forward thinking.
