The Conifer Group, a provider of fund administration, middle office, trading and prime brokerage services to the hedge fund industry, has promoted Howard Eisen to head of business development.
Eisen (pictured) joined Conifer as a managing director in January 2012 to add his hedge fund experience to Conifer's business development team.
Eisen will be reporting to Conifer president and chief executive Jack McDonald.
In addition, Conifer also named Manish Garg as the firm's chief information officer. Garg has been serving as acting head of technology. Garg will be reporting to Conifer chief operating officer Sal Campo.
"Over the past 10 months, Howard has demonstrated outstanding leadership at the firm and has contributed to our strategic growth plans," McDonald says. "Howard's years of experience in our industry, coupled with his thoughtful approach and sales professionalism, make him well-suited for this role."
Prior to Conifer, Eisen held positions in corporate finance and credit for a variety of large New York-area banks.
Garg previously held positions in IT consulting and software engineering for firms such as Accenture, Wells Fargo and Charles Schwab.
