Young Caymanians soar

The Caymanian Times is always happy to provide editorial space for young Caymanians who have made the most of their educational opportunities and who are at the beginning of exciting and fruitful careers. In this edition, we celebrate with Caymanian interns Yosany Castro and Matthew Bergstrom at Grant Thornton who are now transitioning to full-time employees. These are two motivated, enthusiastic, and hard-working individuals who now stand on the cusp of an incredible future within the firm.

Congratulations are also due to two more individuals who are further along in their career path and who have been singled out for promotion: Ann-Alecia Duval and Appolina Winton who are attorneys at Appleby and who have been promoted to Senior Associate, as part of the firm’s latest round of global promotions. This well-deserved advancement recognises the exceptional legal skills, dedication, and contributions of both attorneys, Appleby stated.

Appolina (Apple) Winton is an Appleby legal scholarship recipient and joined the firm in 2016 under its Articled Clerk programme, following completion of her legal studies at Keele University and the Legal Practice Course at BBP University. Having qualified as a Cayman lawyer in 2018, she has seen her career take off, excelling in structured finance, bond offerings, M&A, general corporate matters, insurance & reinsurance and regulatory advice. Ann-Alecia Duval was also an Appleby legal scholarship recipient, completing an LLB at Queen Mary, University of London and the Legal Practice Course at BPP Law School. She joined Appleby as a trainee in 2018 and was admitted as Attorney-at-Law in April, 2020. Ann-Alecia is a skilled finance and corporate attorney, with experience across a wide range of practice areas including structured finance.

On their promotion, Appleby said they were confident in the women’s continued success at Appleby and as women leaders in Cayman.

All four individuals are excellent role models for young Caymanians and their successes are a testament to the good choices they have made, their willingness to learn and work hard, and their motivation to reach the top. We wish them the very best of luck in their new careers and new roles and we will be watching the advancement of their careers with a keen interest.
