Gerard Jan van Spall joins Vistra in Curacao.

Gerard Jan van Spall has joined the Curaçao office of Vistra and will take over as Managing Director as Ronald Cristina is due to retire later this year. Gerard will also become a member of the Vistra Executive Board.

Gerard, a Dutch national, obtained his Law degree at the University of Leiden, where he specialized in corporate law. In 1995 he joined a leading law firm in Curacao, before moving to MeesPierson Trust & Private Banking in 1999 in Curacao and later in Amsterdam.  In 2006 Gerard joined another global provider of corporate services as managing director of the Dutch operation.

His previous extensive experience with the Curacao legal and fiduciary environment and his management, marketing & operational experience enables him to further expand Vistra's service offering in Curaçao.

Finally, we want to thank Ronald Cristina for his valuable contribution to the Vistra Group. Ronald has been at the centre of Vistra's development on Curaçao, which goes back to 1994. In 2007 he was responsible for the successful integration of the Curaçao operation into the Vistra Group.
