Milestone Group Snags Former BNP Paribas Executive

Aug 1 2014 | 5:20am ET

Milestone Group, a global provider of fund processing solutions, has appointed Enrique Gonzalez to bolster product management focusing on the APAC region.
Gonzalez brings more than 25 years of experience in the international asset-servicing industry having worked in Luxembourg, London, Dublin and Sydney. Most recently he worked in Paris for BNP Paribas where he was integral in developing and expanding the bank’s global custody offering. Prior to BNP Paribas he held senior positions at JP Morgan, Citibank, Chase Manhattan Bank, State Street and Westpac Financial Services. His experience spans operations, relationship and product management as well as audit and sales.
“When the opportunity to work with Milestone Group arose it was an easy decision,” said Gonzalez. “The global company is growing rapidly: I had heard a number of success stories with Milestone Group’s pControl platform, not only for the quality of service it provides but also how the company engages with clients. Having sat on the other side of the fence for years, I understand the costs and challenges experienced by asset owners and fund managers. I knew there must be a way technology could simplify many of the processes associated with fund administration, and now I have a chance to drive that change.”
Mark Neary, Milestone Group’s managing director for APAC, said: “We’re excited to bring Enrique on board. The funds industry is at an interesting point in its maturity where it continues to grow, but under constant margin pressure and increased regulatory scrutiny. Product complexity is now a key feature of the global landscape and we are fortunate that Enrique brings such a breadth and depth of experience across products and markets.”
