Independent Trustee Services (ITS) is delighted to announce the appointment of John Lovell as Director of Governance Services, as the company pursues ambitious 2020 growth plans.

Having worked successfully with John on complex matters in the past, I know that his breadth of experience and pragmatic and collegiate style will be a great asset to ITS and our clients as we further develop the depth and breadth of our governance services.

John Lovell said: “I am excited to be joining the ITS team, and to be working alongside talented and dedicated colleagues as ITS continues to build to meet the future demands of trusteeship and scheme governance.”
