Nov 15 2016 | 10:34pm ET

Integrated treasury management specialist Hazeltree has appointed client service veteran Ayman Sakr to lead its worldwide client service organization. 

Sakr will be primarily responsible for managing professional services and client implementation, support, and training, the company said in a statement. He joins Sal Ventura, who joined Hazeltree in early November as head of client relationship management, as senior executives directly responsible for ensuring client satisfaction and value realization.

Sakr brings more than 20 years of experience in professional services, alternative investment industry consultancy, product implementation, client support, and product development to his new role. As a client service executive, he oversaw solution implementation and support for a range of alternative investment clients, including hedge fund managers, asset managers, fund administrators, and prime brokers. 

Sakr was most recently co-founder and global head of client service and product management at investment management solutions provider Paladyne Systems, which was acquired by Broadridge in 2011. 

“Our industry is focused on effectively managing their counterparties with efficient treasury solutions to ensure win-win relationships with their counterparties, while minimizing risk and exposure,” said Sameer Shalaby, president and CEO of Hazeltree. “Ayman is the exceptional leader who will ensure that we deliver service and satisfaction levels that surpass client expectations, and sustain client service excellence as we scale our organization and client base globally.”

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.
