Patrick Hilt has been named as chief technology officer, while Lauri Paal will take on the role of chief product officer.
Hilt, previously chief technology officer at MIRACL, will be responsible for overseeing the technological engineering developments while ensuring the products are easy to use.
Paal will be tasked with growing KNEIP’s reach in the industry. He joins from Microsoft where he was director of business development, overseeing Skype’s business development team.
The hires continue KNEIP’s expansion across the UK and Europe.
In February, the firm undertook a management reshuffle as Bobb Kneip, founder and CEO became chair in order to shift the firm’s focus towards KNEIP’s digital strategy.
Lee Godfrey took on the role of CEO and the firm appointed Gary Janaway as COO, as well as a team of specialists to support him.
According to KNEIP, the data manager has strong ambitions to grow into the US and Asia markets as it grows its digital platform.
Speaking on the new appointments, Godfrey said: “The service keeps on improving and the team is continuing to expand. Every hire embodies our ambition to transform the funds industry for investors. We strive for transparency and efficiency, and the skills that both Patrick Hilt and Lauri Paal will bring with them will be invaluable in delivering the best possible service.”
