New CEO Takes Helm At Vistra
The firm, which has more than 5,000 staff, covers 47 jurisdictions.
Vistra, the fund and corporate service provider firm, has appointed Simon Webster (pictured) as its new chief executive. He will be taking the helm from Alan Brown, who has stepped down.
The appointment, taking effect from Monday, will see Webster leading a business which covers 47 jurisdictions.
With more than 30 years of experience, Webster was most recently group CEO of CPA Global, the provider of intellectual property software, services, data and analytics for corporates and law firms.
Brown, named CEO in April 2019, reflected on his own time in leading Vistra and his four decades in the financial services space.
“Watching such an extraordinarily diverse group of people come together to form One Vistra has been one of the highlights of my 42-year career. Together, with my great leadership team, we have built an industry-leading global operating platform. It has been very rewarding to see this translating into strong organic growth,” he said.
