Man Group Appoints Two To Board

May 5 2011 | 8:19am ET

The Man Group, which recently reclaimed its title as the world’s largest hedge fund, has made two appointments to its board.

The London-based firm, with $69 billion under management thanks to its 2010 acquisition of GLG Partners, has appointed COO Emmanuel Roman as an executive director and Matthew Lester, CFO of the Royal Mail Group, as a non-executive director.

Roman joined Man in 2010 as part of the completion of the merger with GLG, where he’d served as co-CEO. He’d joined GLG in 2005 after 18 years at Goldman Sachs.

Lester was group finance director at ICAP from 2006 to 2010, and before that held a range of senior finance roles at Diageo.

Man chairman Jon Aisbitt said: “I am delighted to welcome Manny Roman and Matthew Lester to the board. Manny’s appointment brings us a wealth of trading, operational and business management experience as well as providing a key link between sales, investment management  and operations across the Group. Matthew brings to Man substantial relevant experience both from within and outside our sector which will further strengthen the Board’s financial management  and regulatory expertise.”
