Guernsey's first rum company, The Juggling King, has announced another addition to its board.
Partner at Mourant Ozannes, Robert Shepherd, has joined bringing with him experience of corporate and fiduciary matters from his 30 year litigation career.
Mr Shepherd's career saw him move from Clifford Chance to Mourant Ozannes in 1999, where within three years he was promoted to Partner and not long afterwards became Managing Partner. He was appointed the firm's Global Senior Partner in 2013.
Throughout his career he has been involved in a number of high profile trust cases and in recent years he has developed his expertise in fund litigation.
"I am very excited to support the company as it embarks on this exciting journey," said Mr Shepherd. "I hope to provide the necessary guidance to the board at all levels relating to the company's serious and focused growth prospects."
Founder and Managing Director of The Juggling King, Jack Gervaise-Brazier added: "I have the greatest respect for Robert as a director and his appointment serves to provide excellent corporate governance and local legal support for the business.
"To be flanked by the high calibre of directors such as David Hitchcock OBE and Robert Shepherd is extremely exciting for the positioning of the business as it puts its growth on a sustainable footing."
The Juggling King is currently growing its distilling process ahead of production while also growing sugarcane locally.
