Northern Trust (Nasdaq: NTRS) announced today that Peter Jordan has been appointed head of Global Fund Services (GFS) for the growing Asia-Pacific region, based in Melbourne. Jordan succeeds Camie West, who will return to Chicago and become the head of Strategic Client Relationships for GFS.
Jordan was earlier this year appointed as head of GFS in Australia and New Zealand, to support Northern Trust's growing fund service. In his newly expanded role, he will report to Peter Cherecwich, head of Global Fund Services, and William Mak, the Singapore-based head of Northern Trust in the Asia-Pacific region.
Jordan who joined Northern Trust in 1992 has held a number of roles across the organization, including chief administration officer for GFS where, from his London base, he was responsible for Northern Trust's global institutional client relationships. He was also instrumental in leading the expansion of Northern Trusts business in Ireland where he held the position of managing director for three years.
As head of GFS for Asia during the past three years, West was instrumental in cementing Northern Trust's GFS presence, growing the business' regional hub in Hong Kong. In her new role, she will lead the group responsible for large, global GFS clients and prospective clients. Through her global experience, she will focus on linking regional relationships to form a cohesive global service model.
"Our asset manager clients operate on a global scale regardless of their country of origin," Cherecwich said. "Peter and Camie's wealth of knowledge and global industry experience will ensure we are well positioned to offer innovative solutions to meet the needs of these increasingly global clients."
"We continue to invest in strong leadership and operational capacity across the Asia Pacific region," Mak said. "Northern Trust has an experienced team to help reinforce our global operating model and ensure our legacy of client-centric service, integrity, and innovation."
