Our first names


The first name in tenacity

Nicola Rushton is a Senior Manager for First Names Group in Jersey.

Ideally suited to client services with a natural talent for building strong relationships, Nikki is proactive in the development of others and herself. Her strong communication skills mean that she is able to instruct as well as she listens. Nikki is responsible for a team of administrators who provide services to private clients such as high net worth individuals through a variety of structures. She never quits until the job is done to the highest standards.

The early bird catches the worm.

Nikki has been keeping the books in order since joining the Group in 2011. Prior to that she worked for over 17 years for some of the biggest names in the offshore trust industry, where she gained valuable experience. Nikki holds the Diploma in Trust and Estate Practice from the Institute of Financial Services and the Certificate in Employee Share Plans from the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators.

A person like Nikki is an anchor in any organisation – she can always be relied on to speak up and express her ideas and thoughts clearly, directly, honestly and with respect for others. Consistency is key and she can be counted on to deliver good performance all of the time. It comes as no surprise that Nikki enjoys working with Jen Le Chevalier who inspires everyone through strong leadership whilst also sharing the same commitment to the spirit of teamwork.


The lure of exploring new cultures and exotic foods is part of Nikki’s DNA. More likely to be found on the beach than inland, she feels at one with the rhythm of the ocean. Swimming with wild dolphins in the open sea off Kaikoura, New Zealand ranks as an almost spiritual experience. Energetic and active, Nikki makes maintaining a positive work-life balance a priority, working and travelling hard in equal measure.
