New York / London – December 1, 2004 – Risk Talent Associates, a leading risk management executive search firm, announced today that it opened an office in London, United Kingdom.
Located in the heart of London’s financial and business district at Tower 42, 25 Old Broad Street, the new office reinforces the company’s commitment to serving the European market. Michael Woodrow, President of Risk Talent, says the move was a strategic decision. “London is certainly the financial center for Europe, and many of our US clients have significant operations there. The new office allows us to respond to growing demand for our services outside of North America.”
Risk Talent also added key human resources to respond to increasing client needs. Earlier this fall, James Heneghan was appointed Senior Associate to lead engagements with the company’s hedge fund, fund of funds and prime broker clients. Prior to Risk Talent, Mr. Heneghan worked in various roles at Northern Trust, most recently as Vice President.
Irina Shenkman joins the recruiting team as a search consultant. Ms. Shenkman has over nine years of recruiting experience in financial services and executive search, including positions at various hedge funds, Ward Howell International, and Tuck School of Business.
Daniel Keppie joins the marketing department as a public relations specialist. Mr. Keppie formerly worked with Toronto-based risk management software provider Algorithmics.
