The Central Registry was formed on the April 1, 2015, following the transfer of several functions of the General Registry – namely the Charities Registry, Civil Registry, Deeds Registry, Land Registry, Public Records Office, and Probate Registry – to the Department of Economic Development where they merged with the Companies Registry.
John Wilkinson, formerly the Isle of Man Companies Registrar, has been appointed to the post of Director of the Central Registry. He takes up the role with immediate effect from August 10, 2015.
Leonard Singer, the Department's political member with responsibility for the Central Registry, said: "I would like to congratulate John on his appointment. The creation of the Central Registry enables cost savings and improvements across our registry services for the benefit of the public and business community."
