New C.E.O. Appointed

Article Posted: 5th Jun 2015

Council is pleased to announce that Juan Moore will take up the full time role of Isle of Man Law Society Chief Executive Officer on Monday June 1.

Juan, who is from Douglas, holds a Law and Accountancy degree, is a member of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators and has in excess of 20 years administrative and accounting experience working primarily in the fiduciary sector, managing complex structures for high net worth clients sitting on the board of a number of client companies. He also has had two spells in our own profession in an accounting function although at the start of his career he was with the civil service and for those who can remember the days of manuscript markings one of his earliest jobs was at the Attorney General’s Chambers where he used to mark up legislation with hand-written amendments!

In making this appointment Council was conscious of the fact the Society has evolved in recent years. We have listened to what Members want from their Society and considered the needs of the profession.

The principal purpose of the CEO role will be to implement the decisions of Council. In consequence, Council members and the President in particular, will have a raised public profile in representing the face of the profession externally.

Juan will be building on the strong foundations laid over the past five years, which have seen the Society recognised as an effective and credible regulator and supporter of the profession. As we move forward in the context of increased external scrutiny, we continue to be confident that the Society has embraced sound principles of governance and a framework of proportionate regulatory standards.
