Des Johnson joins Centaur Fund Services
Former SS&C Technologies global co-head of investor services Des Johnson has joined Centaur Fund Services as CEO of the US.

Johnson has 20 years of experience in fund administration. He was recently part of the executive team at SS&C where he managed more than 600 people across 12 countries.

He has held senior management positions at Citibank, BISYS Hedge Fund Services and State Street.

Johnson, who is based in New York, said: “I’m delighted to lead Centaur USA and am committed to accelerating our US momentum. The growth prospects for our business in North America are extremely exciting as clients really appreciate Centaur’s ‘client first’ approach.”

“Centaur has a strong group of hedge fund, private equity and family office clients in the US and we see tremendous opportunities for further growth,” commented Eric Bertrand, founding partner of Centaur Fund Services.

“We launched our Bermuda office in 2016 and this has become an important servicing centre for us. Des Johnson is a key hire and we expect to build significantly in North America in the coming years.”
