Link Fund Solutions has appointed Peter Sipek as its chief operating officer as part of a broader transformation initiative across the business.
In his new position with Link, Mr Sipek will be responsible for overseeing Link Fund Solutions’ market-leading operational teams and play a role in the overhaul of the team’s structure to a “solutions and client outcomes-oriented’ operational model.
As part of its transformation driven by head of relationship management and sales Rebecca Charles, the business has created a dedicated client transformation team.
It has aimed to leverage parent company Link Group’s technology infrastructure to provide specialist support to clients around restructures and the onboarding of new mandates.
Link Fund Solutions has also added to its client management team, with the hire of Katerina Cotrim as a senior client service manager and Jarrett da Silva and Reshma Keshow as client service managers.
All three newcomers are said to bring more than a decade of experience in client relationship management across the financial services sector.
Link Fund Solutions chief executive Paul Khoury commented: “Our new client transformation team, led by David Leighton and Edward Jowsey, rounds out our holistic solutions-oriented offering by assisting with complex transformational projects, while allowing our revamped client management team to focus on providing best-in-class support with daily operations.”
Mr Sipek previously has gained operational experience through roles with Colonial First State, AMP Capital and State Super.
Mr Khoury stated: “Peter’s skill set and expertise perfectly align with our solutions-oriented approach to client services, and I look forward to working with him closely on making the transformation of our operating model a resounding success.
On his appointment, Mr Sipek said: “I am very excited to be joining Link Fund Solutions in a period of strong organic growth.
“I look forward to working with an exceptional management and client service team to provide industry-leading solutions and drive positive outcomes for our growing client base.”
Link Fund Solutions reported it has commenced working with a number of new clients and also expanded its scope with numerous existing clients, including TPT Wealth, Vinva Investment Management, Viburnum Funds, Ethical Partners Funds Management and Magellan.
“This is a period of tremendous activity and growth for Link Fund Solutions, and as our fund clients increasingly expand into the listed space, we are excited to offer a holistic, standardised and streamlined service offering across listed and unlisted funds,” Mr Khoury said.
