Ocorian strengthens European business development team with five new appointments

We are delighted to announce that we have strengthened our European and UK business development team with the appointments of Business Development Directors, Andrew Stewart, Chris Mayfield, Natasha Head, Vivienne Fitzpatrick, and William Turmann.

With specialisms in corporate services and direct lending, infrastructure, venture capital, real estate and debt funds, the new appointments add breadth and depth to our global business development expertise across the private equity and listed funds, capital markets and private client sectors. 

Simon Behan, Chief Commercial Officer of Ocorian, commented: “The calibre of our new appointments represents the confidence and ambition we have in our growth capabilities as a leading provider of funds and corporate services."

He continued: "As economies begin to reopen and rebuild, fund managers and corporates are increasingly going to need administration and compliance support to implement their strategies with confidence. With a depth of experience across the funds and corporate sectors, our business development team is perfectly placed to connect these market players with our world-class client solutions, helping them to achieve scale and substance in what is a rapidly changing business landscape."
