Conifer Makes 2 Senior Appointments

Nov 28 2012 | 1:42pm ET

Hedge fund servicer Conifer Group has promoted two of its own to senior positions.

Managing Director Howard Eisen has been named head of business development while acting head of technology Manish Garg has been tapped as the firm's chief information officer.

Eisen joined Conifer in January of this year, prior to which he'd held positions in corporate finance and credit for a variety of large New York-area banks. Garg, prior to Conifer, held positions in IT consulting and software engineering for firms such as Accenture, Wells Fargo and Charles Schwab.

Eisen will report to Conifer President and CEO Jack McDonald and Garg to COO Sal Campo.

Said McDonald in a statement: “Over the past 10 months, Howard has demonstrated outstanding leadership at the firm and has contributed to our strategic growth plans,” said McDonald in a statement. “Howard’s years of experience in our industry, coupled with his thoughtful approach and sales professionalism, make him well-suited for this role.”

Commenting on Garg’s promotion, Campo said in a statement: “Since Manish assumed the role as acting Head of Technology earlier this year, he has risen to the occasion and consistently demonstrated his drive and management ability.  His continued commitment to Conifer has created a first-class technical environment for the firm and our clients. With major technology upgrades in the works, I am very excited to have Manish at the reins.”
