Roelf Odendaal

Director

‘Owning a business and caring for my family sometimes feels like two opposites that constantly repel each other. Trying to balance the two is sometimes exhausting and tiring and, needless to say, sometimes one receives more attention than the other. My passion is to see families stay and work together in building not only the family’s business but also its identity.

‘My first-hand experience of the difficulties business families face opened my eyes to the needs of our clients to see their business and family succeed. These experiences, as well as my background in accounting, management and the Trust industry provides the insight needed to guide families in discovering their identity. I will regard myself as successful in my career and business if the families I work with are functioning well and cohesively in sixty years’ time while their family business is thriving.’

Director

‘I joined Turnstone in 2009 and have been in the Trust industry since 1997, am a qualified Chartered Secretary and have a degree in Business Studies. When I’m not at home with my young family, much of my time is spent building relationships with our extensive network of professional intermediaries, preparing detailed proposals for prospective clients and making overseas trips to wherever I’m needed, particularly London, Mauritius and South Africa and you might find me sneaking off for a dive with a few tiger or blue sharks when I’m Durban or Cape Town – it’s a hard life!’

Non-Executive Director

'Having enjoyed living in the Isle of Man for several years I'm a big advocate of our beautiful island, the huge opportunities it presents not only to residents but also to international individuals and businesses.  During my career at the cutting edge of IT development, as Managing Director of both Itex (Isle of Man) and XKO (IOM) Ltd (latterly known as 2e2) as well as Commercial Director for Manx Telecom, I have seen first-hand the potential for growth and expansion for firms doing business in and with the Isle of Man.  The superb infrastructure and responsive attitude of the Isle of Man Government is an ideal foundation for success across any industry'
