Our first names


The first name in focused attention

Dawn Manti’s role is certainly varied. As an Associate Director of Operations for First Names Group in Jersey, she has a hand in so many aspects of the business, and is tasked with ensuring that all runs smoothly. Her dedicated and focused attention enables her to make the business – and the people – much happier. Dawn positions people front and centre, counting herself lucky as she genuinely loves working with many different departments and people across the Group. With over 20 years’ experience in the finance industry, Dawn is ideally suited to managing the facilities and company secretarial teams and operations in Jersey.

Give to the world the best you have,
 and the best will come back to you.

One of Dawn’s biggest talents is that she can identify and solve obstacles before they become problems. Communication is another key skill that she is blessed with and people like listening to her as she projects such positive enthusiasm. A fellow member of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators with a diploma in Offshore Finance and Administration, Dawn also has certificates in Jersey Company and Trust Administration, and Jersey Probate and Estate Administration.

Dawn believes that if people are happy in what they are doing, they will do a great job. Despite her busy schedule, she is never too busy to find time for others, spreading her sense of well being as she goes. She particularly enjoys working with Sharon McMillan who is very supportive, motivated and dynamic. She shares the same vision and professional management style.


Dawn loves spending quality time with her family – so much so that together with her husband she took a career break and home schooled their two children in France for a year. The timing was ideal as the children were the perfect age. Her very close-knit wider family are thrilled to have them home in Jersey where all spend weekends together.
