deVere Group appoints Beverley Yeomans as Chief Diversity Officer

deVere Group has appointed Beverley Yeomans as its inaugural Chief Diversity Officer (CDO). Based in Malta, Yeomans, who is also the Chief Operating Officer for deVere Group, takes up the additional role with immediate effect and reports directly to the founder and CEO, Nigel Green.

“deVere is committed to making our globe-spanning organisation even more inclusive, diverse and equitable. To ensure that this critical commitment is successful, we needed someone who knows our culture inside out to lead the charge," said Green. 

Beverley has played a significant role as a senior executive role and on the Board, for some 22 years in a highly male-dominated sector.  "Due to traditional industry biases, it’s a depressing reality that very few women have ever achieved this level, so young, and for this long in international financial services," said Green. 

“But Beverley tore-up that ‘rule book’, breaking down barriers and leading by example. She was the ideal person to become our first-ever Chief Diversity Officer," added Green. 

Talking about the recent appointment, Yeomans said, “I’m thrilled to be taking on this extra role and help our group further incorporate diversity and inclusion in the way we operate day-to-day, as well as attracting and retaining the very best diverse talent”.
