The board of debt judgment registrar Registry Trust has designated Nick Rossiter its new Chief Executive Officer with effect from July this year. Rossiter has worked with Registry Trust for 13 years, initially as operational manager and more recently as an Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer. Last year he was appointed Deputy Chief Executive. Rossiter will take over from outgoing Chief Executive Jon Hale, who retires on June 30 after 18 years as chief executive and 32 years with the Trust.

Chairman Malcolm Hurlston CBE said: “Nick Rossiter has gained the deep regard of our partners and staff. Jon Hale is confident that his unique legacy is safe in Nick’s hands as well as the future developments of our mission. The board was unanimous this week in its approval of my recommendation that Nick become chief executive designate with immediate effect. We are now in the process of selecting a new senior executive capable of joining Nick on the board of the Trust.”

Nick Rossiter joined Registry Trust after working in credit reference agencies Experian and Callcredit, and the Land Registry.
