“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.”
Ellie Lawrence was locally educated at the Grammar School and following a gap year working as a nanny in the U.S., began her career in Trust in 2002. Ellie brings 13 years’ experience working in the local fiduciary sector, mostly spent working for the trust arm of a highly reputable Canadian bank. Ellie forged strong bonds with clients playing a key part in many high level transactions involving real estate, bloodstock and investment property, as well as navigating a number of litigious family disputes.
Ellie completed her STEP diploma in 2008 in a short 9 months from start to finish.
Following the birth of her third child in 2015 Ellie left the commercial industry and later joined FWS Ltd taking on a role encompassing all aspects of administration, including executive secretarial duties, bookkeeping and accounts preparation and event management. The tools of Ellie’s industry experience mean that she is able to execute the tasks set by FWS Ltd’s clients on time with strategic distinction. Ellie carries out the day to day operations of the company.
Homelife is busy with a husband, 3 children and 6 chickens to cater for. If she gets any downtime you might find her cooking or planning the family’s next adventure.
FWS Ltd was founded by Andrea Dudley-Owen in 2008. After completing a BA (Hons) Degree in Japanese and qualifying as a teacher of “English as a Foreign Language” she lived and worked in the Far East before returning to Guernsey in 1999. Andrea worked for the Finance Training Agency gaining a Higher Diploma in Business Administration, before beginning an 8 year career in the Trust industry, when she became STEP qualified.
Since setting up FWS Ltd Andrea has provided a broad spectrum of Marketing & Administration services for businesses locally and abroad, from a variety of sectors such as recruitment, relocation, community and finance.
Andrea was elected as a States of Guernsey Deputy in 2016. Her duties and busy schedule mean that she is no longer involved in the day to day running of the business, but provides partner support to Ellie and strategic oversight.
Away from the desk Andrea has a noisy house full of children and dogs. She loves the beach in the summer and walking in the the great outdoors. Breeding Tamworth Pigs were an indulgent passion before the children arrived, but have been succeeded now by easy-to-keep hens.
