Another new leadership appointment at KNEIP
KNEIP has appointed Gary Janaway as COO, amid a wider leadership shake-up at the firm.

Janaway took over responsibility for operations and IT on 1 January. His appointment is intended to improve operational efficiency and improve client services.

Previously, he was director of operations at Schroders, where he was directly involved in formulating and delivering Schroders’s investment fund ranges in Europe and Asia. Having held this position since 1991, he also served on several fund and management boards.

The appointment comes after KNEIP announced that Bob Kneip, founder and CEO, is moving the position of chair, while Lee Godfrey will take on the CEO position.

Former chair, Marie-Jeanne Chèvremont, will remain on the board of directors, and will be a special advisor to the new chair.

These changes are part of a focus on KNEIP’s digital strategy, which Kneip will lead in his new position. He has also appointed Neil Ward, former global senior vice president of business operations at Skype, and a team of specialists, to help him.

Commenting on Janaway’s appointment, Godfrey said: “Gary Janaway brings with him a wealth of experience from over 25 years in the asset management industry. He knows as well as anyone the challenges faced by asset managers, and I am very pleased that he has joined KNEIP.”

“The expertise that Gary Janaway brings from his previous roles will be invaluable to our clients and help KNEIP to build cutting edge solutions that will drive efficiency throughout the industry.”

Janaway said: “KNEIP has assembled an impressive management team that will deliver our digital strategy employing progressive technologies to deliver solutions to our clients. This is marvelous time to join the company with its ambitious plans for the future.”
