Hedge fund administrator SS&C Technologies has a new top lawyer.
The Windsor, Conn.-based firm, which also provides financial-services software, named Paul Igoe its general counsel. Igoe succeeds outgoing general counsel Stephen Whitman on Jan. 7.
"Paul’s proven track record in merger and acquisitions will add valuable intellectual wealth to our growing team. I am delighted to appoint him to this critical role at SS&C," SS&C CEO Bill Stone said. "We also wish Steve Whitman all the best as he enters retirement."
SS&C has been on something of a shopping spree recently, acquiring administrators GlobeOp Financial Services, BDO Simpson Xavier Fund Administrator Services, Gravity Financial and Hedgemetrix.
Igoe joins SS&C from engineering products company Lydall Inc., where he was also general counsel, and formerly served as associate general counsel at test equipment maker Teradyne Inc.
