Apex Group has hired Joseph Holman as global head of allocators, where he will manage client relationships following the group’s series of acquisitions.
He will look after Apex’s relationships with institutional-sized investors and allocators worldwide, and will lead their interactions with clients as the administrator integrates acquired businesses.
Holman will report to Fred Jacobs, the newly chief revenue officer, and will be based in New York.
“Joseph’s extensive expertise in driving growth and business development, in addition to his thoughtful approach to relationship management, delivers the perfect blend for Apex as we move upmarket and focus on institutional businesses,” said Peter Hughes, founder and CEO, Apex Group.
Holman previously served as the chief executive of Orangefield-Columbus Fund Services, prior to its acquisition by Vistra in 2016. Following the transaction, he was responsible for the integration of all of its US offices.
The move signals a focus on client relationships, following a series of high profile acquisitions by Apex which took it into the top five fund administrators globally.
“The Group has a strong reputation for providing responsive, high-quality and holistic fund administration solutions to asset managers worldwide, and I am looking forward to being a part of that legacy and contributing to the continued success of both clients and the business itself,” added Holman.
