Sionic Celebrates a Decade of Delivery in Jersey

We’ve accelerated from ‘boutique’ to global and now have bases across America, Europe and Asia – a fantastic footprint from which to expand further.

Sionic is celebrating its tenth anniversary in Jersey with a specialist ‘success’ seminar for an invited audience, followed by a VIP reception for more than a hundred senior clients and guests. Both events take place tomorrow, Thursday 3 October 2019 at The Royal Yacht, St Helier, one of the island’s most prestigious venues.



Led by Sionic Managing Partners Stuart Richford and Paul Bratch, the Jersey team services clients in Jersey, mainland UK, Europe and Asia.  Since its original formation in 2009, the Jersey team have been through a number of changes: in February 2018 Knadel Jersey was acquired by London-based financial specialists Catalyst Development Ltd, which in turn merged with global consulting firm Sionic Advisors in April 2019. The whole firm then united globally as ‘Sionic’ in June 2019 under CEO Craig Sher.


Stuart Richford comments

“when we founded the original Jersey team a decade ago, our plan was always to deliver bespoke expertise to a global client base. I’m tremendously proud that we’ve always had an international clientele and that in the last eighteen months we’ve accelerated from ‘boutique’ to global. We’re now part of one of financial services’ fastest growing specialist consultancies, with established bases across America, Europe and Asia – a fantastic footprint from which to expand further.

Of course changing rapidly ourselves, while consistently striving to deliver excellence to our clients, means we have to practise what we preach. I’m therefore delighted that Sionic CEO Craig Sher is joining our celebrations and that Sionic Chief Strategy Officer Pete Stone will deliver our keynote seminar on the critical factors of successful change in finance.  Pete is a specialist in this field and will be drawing on the firm’s industry-leading expertise in organisational development. The whole team is looking forward to welcoming our colleagues, clients and friends to celebrate a decade of delivery in style!” 


Sionic CEO Craig Sher adds

“fast growth must never come at the expense of expertise.  The Jersey team’s ability to work at global scale, at pace and to collaborate with colleagues worldwide to tackle clients’ complex challenges is impressive. We are already using that skill to expand our European and Asia bases further. For Sionic, this celebration unites the best of all worlds: a celebration of achievement, of expertise – and the next step towards an exciting future.”
