Maitland Bolsters Business Development Team Globally

Amisha Mehta, Assistant Editor, London, 2 December 2015


The global advisory and administration firm has created four new roles across Europe, the US and Latin America.

Maitland has made four appointments to its business development and client management team as part of its global growth push.

In London, Luke Spencer-Wilson joins from HSBC where he was sales director for asset managers and alternative investment managers. He brings almost 20 years of experience in investment management and banking. As senior business development manager, he will be responsible for expanding Maitland’s footprint in the European alternative investment fund space. 

Charles Romilly, previously a director of the UK institutional business of Saxo Bank, joins the London team as business development advisor. He has over 25 years’ experience in financial services, specifically in alternative investments and derivatives, and has co-founded two UK regulated entities. He will drive the growth of the firm's private client and institutional services across Europe. Both Romilly and Spencer-Wilson will report to Patric Foley-Brickley. 

Meanwhile, in Latin America, Pedro Hilton Olmo has been appointed client services manager. He is an attorney and joins from Turim, a multi-family office in Brazil. He will be responsible for servicing and managing Maitland’s range of Latin American clients.

Lastly, Bill Henderson joins Maitland's New York office as senior business development manager, to focus on boosting the firm’s share of the hedge and private equity fund administration market in North America and the Caribbean. Henderson previously worked at hedge fund administration firm Butterfield Fulcrum, where he was a managing director leading global sales efforts. He brings 20 years of experience in the financial services industry, having also held roles at Merrill Lynch and Salomon Smith Barley. He will report to Scott Price.

“These hires […] signal our ambitions in these three regions in particular. While most recent growth has been in our fund administration business, all areas of the firm are gaining traction as clients increasingly recognise the value of our one-firm approach to fund, family office and corporate services,” said Dave Kubilus, Maitland’s head of business development and client management.
