Elian celebrates success at ICSA Jersey awards 2015November 2, 2015
Elian Corporate Services secured a clutch of accolades at the ICSA Jersey Awards, including two headline awards: Corporate Services Team of the Year and Administration Team of the Year. The awards were presented at the glittering black tie ICSA Jersey annual dinner held at Hotel de France recently.
This is the fourth consecutive year that Elian Corporate Services has secured a team award, and the first year they have won as Elian following the launch of the new brand and identity just over a year ago.
In addition to the team awards, a number of talented individuals were also recognised for their professional achievements.
Elian’s Sarah Valerkou picked up the award for Best Jersey Completion of the Diploma in Offshore Finance and Administration (DOFA). She also achieved the Best Overall Completion Award, securing her the Student Excellence Award, which is based on examination performance.
Six Elian employees were also national winners. Claire-Louise Vautier, Silvio Andrade, Danielle Sangan, Pamela Dickson, Emily Raper and Sarah Valerkou achieved the highest marks nationally in their respective examination papers. In total, Jersey students won 12 of the 20 national awards available.
Simon Mackenzie, head of Elian Corporate Services, said: ‘I am delighted that the team and a number of Elian employees have been recognised once again by this leading industry body. At Elian we are committed to providing the highest levels of client service, and we believe that investment in training and professional development has a fundamental role in achieving this. I am extremely proud of the achievements of both the team and the individual award winners. Collectively, and as individuals, it’s clear from these awards that Elian continues to raise the bar in professional development and client service.’
