MaplesFS Expands Middle East Team

Apr 23 2012 | 11:29am ET

Fund and fiduciary services provider MaplesFS has made three senior hires in its Dubai office.

Joining the firm’s Middle East team are Fred Tabbal as regional head of fund services, Andrew Millar joins as senior vice president of fiduciary services and Charlotte Windsor as vice president of fund services.

Tabbal comes to MaplesFS from Clarkson Investment Services where he served as chief operating officer. Prior to that, he was executive director of operations at Dubai Capital Group, the MENA investment arm of Dubai Holding. He has also held executive positions at Caledonian Global Fund Services, Bisys Alternative Fund Services and JPMorgan. Tabbal serves as an advisory board member for Advent Software EMEA.

Millar returns to MaplesFS after a stint with Sunbelt Australia, a business brokerage network. Prior to that, Millar was a vice president with MaplesFS in the Cayman Islands, Jersey and the British Virgin Islands from 2006 to 2010, overseeing a portfolio of structured finance clients. Before this, he was an account manager with Fortis Prime Fund Solutions.

Windsor previously worked for Ernst & Young in the UK, where she was a senior executive manager in the environmental finance group focusing on advisory and transaction work. Prior to that, she worked at Sinclair Henderson Fund Administration.

In their new roles, Tabbal and Millar oversee strategic direction for their respective lines of business in the region, business development, and will be responsible for managing the entire Middle East team and operations. Windsor has operational responsibility for the fund accounting and investor services teams in Dubai and will also play a role in business development.

“Fred, Andrew and Charlotte are significant hires with deep expertise and experience that further strengthen our offering in the region,” said Scott Somerville, MaplesFS CEO, in a statement.  “As the investment environment in the MENA region evolves, we evolve with it, and these new hires will help us to continue to offer cutting edge solutions that meet the unique requirements of asset managers in the region.”
