We are thrilled to announce that our very own Lorraine Wheeler has been awarded the STEP Founder’s Award for Outstanding Achievement.
The STEP Founder’s Awards are awarded to members of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) who have made a long-term contribution to the Society above and beyond that normally expected of a member, either through office in their local STEP branch or other voluntary activities relating to the Society.
Lorraine is a Client Services Director based in our Jersey office and was appointed Chair of STEP Jersey last year. She has previously served as Vice-Chair and Secretary of the branch, and is also a former committee member of the Bermuda and Suisse Romande branches. With over 1200 members, the Jersey branch of STEP is the largest in the world.
Lorraine has worked in the fiduciary sector for 30 years, gaining experience in the UK, Bermuda, Switzerland and Jersey. She joined STEP in 1993. Well recognised for her trust and fiduciary expertise, Lorraine is regularly invited to take part in or chair panel discussions at industry conferences and seminars.
