Jersey Business Announces the Departure of Chief Executive Andy Cook


The Chief Executive of Jersey Business, Andy Cook, has decided to step down this summer. Mr Cook joined Jersey Business in September 2012 as its first Chief Executive.

Chairman, Peter Funk, said: “Andy has taken the Company from scratch and built it into a well staffed organisation providing advisory and other services to over 1,000 clients and partners in 2013.  He has established excellent relations with Government and the business community.  The Board of Directors, our staff and stakeholders would like to sincerely thank him for his hard work and considerable achievements.”

Jersey Business’s Board will now be working with the Appointments Commission to recruit a new Chief Executive.

Mr Funk added: “We will be looking for someone who can build on the very strong foundations which Andy has now put in place, through our own start-up phase.  Jersey Business provides essential advice and support to both new and existing companies, and we will be recruiting a new Chief Executive who can take the lead in that important work, as well as continuing to develop our relationships with important partners both in Government and the business community”.

Jersey Business is a States-funded organisation providing support to businesses in Jersey.
