Hazeltree Taps JPM's Ventura to Lead Client Management

Nov 2 2016 | 9:58pm ET

Integrated treasury management specialist Hazeltree has appointed industry veteran and former J.P. Morgan executive Sal Ventura as head of client relationship management. 

Ventura will be primarily focused on managing client relationships to ensure senior-level sponsorship and connectivity between clients and Hazeltree, the company said. This will include prioritizing client requests once they are fully implemented with Hazeltree, and maximizing the value of Hazeltree’s solutions to clients on a continuous basis.  

Ventura brings 25 years of experience in the prime brokerage, product development and operations space. He was most recently as managing director and global head of client services for the J.P. Morgan custody and fund services business. Beforehand, he was global head of Citigroup’s investment banking and private banking operations & middle office. Before Citi, he spent ten years in prime brokerage at Credit Suisse and Lehman Brothers as global head of prime broker client services. 

Early in his career, Ventura was with the financial services practice of Price Waterhouse, auditing banks, broker dealers, investment companies and alternative managers.

“As regulations continue to impact our industry, we continue to see increased focus on treasury and counterparty management,” said Sameer Shalaby, president and CEO of Hazeltree. “Sal’s industry experience provides him a unique perspective to manage our client relationships as we respond to global market demands.”

Founded in 2009 and headquartered in New York, Hazeltree offers comprehensive treasury management solutions for hedge funds, fund administrators, managed account providers, pension funds, and insurance companies. The firm’s integrated platform includes comprehensive cash management, securities financing, OTC collateral management, counterparty management and margin management capabilities.
