Castle Trust appoints Mikkel Bates as head of marketing

Castle Trust has appointed Mikkel Bates as head of marketing.

Bates has 30 years’ financial services experience, including eleven at Societe Generale Asset Management UK, where he was head of marketing.

He will report to chief executive Sean Oldfield.

Bates says: “The challenge of launching a new business like this with such a compelling proposition is something that does not come along very often so naturally I jumped at the chance to get on board.”
