A new addition to the Island’s international business community is being celebrated this week following the successful merger of two local corporate and fiduciary services providers under the banner of one of the leading providers of global maritime services. Döhle Corporate and Trust Services Limited combines the expertise of Vantage Corporate Services Limited and Corsiom Corporate Services, and the global infrastructure of Peter Döhle Group, to create an international brand with what its architects describe as truly multi-jurisdictional reach.
Having operated as licensed service providers since 2005, the two companies have steadily built an international portfolio of clients by placing a distinct emphasis upon intimacy of service and a keen eye for technical detail. A strategy of controlled expansion for both companies has resulted in consistent growth meaning that, in spite of challenging economic conditions, both firms also enjoyed the privilege of being able to guarantee the security of their employees as at the date of the merger. Indeed, Döhle Corporate and Trust Services Limited is now celebrating the seamless merger, which took place over a three month period, with the addition of new members of staff to support a growing client and services portfolio.
The newly established organisation continues to enjoy working at its Fort Anne offices overlooking Douglas Bay albeit under an entirely refreshed brand designed to more accurately reflect both its history and ambitions. By juxtaposing the famous work of German Romantic landscape artist Caspar David Friedrich, in his ‘The Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog’, with a clean and elegant, red and navy colour palette, the new brand emphasizes the firm’s core values of technical precision, a focus upon the individual, and a history of excellence in the global maritime industry.
Managing Director Eckhard Garbers commented: “It is testament to the culture of both companies that the merger was conducted so seamlessly. Our employees have reacted very well to the move and our clients acknowledge that they now enjoy a simpler route to the global infrastructure that we provide under the Döhle flag. We have always focused upon starting with the client first and working backwards towards the services, meaning that we have remained attentive, agile and responsive within a fragile economy. This has served us well in the past and I think our clients appreciate our intentions to maintain this sentiment under the banner of Döhle Corporate and Trust Services.
