Technology provider Eze Castle Integration has boosted its West Coast operation with the addition of a pair of former hedge fund technology chiefs.
Michael Hartig has been named regional service director and Zachary Lehman technology director. The former will focus boosting Eze Castle’s West Coast business from its Los Angeles and San Francisco bases. Lehman will serve in a role he knows well—as a “virtual” chief technology officer for the firm’s West Coast clients.
“Mike and Zach bring impressive backgrounds and a wealth of technical and hedge fund-specific expertise to Eze Castle,” managing director Vinod Paul said. “Their proven track records will make them major assets to our clients and further enhance our West Coast operations.”
Both Hartig and Lehman formerly worked at Eze Castle, the latter in service delivery in San Francisco and the former as service director in Minneapolis. Hartig returns to the firm from Seasons Capital Management, where he’s spent the last four years as chief technology officer. Lehman, who also played a role in setting up Eze Castle’s Chicago and San Francisco offices, most recently was director of technology at Varde Partners.
