With over ten years of industry experience, Jonathan Shapiro joins Gravitas as Senior Director of Business Development, leading the sales team in all revenue producing activities for The Gravitas Platform.

“I am delighted to be joining Gravitas, a firm that is dedicated to top notch performance and client service.  I look forward to expanding our footprint within the alternative investment community especially through our platform solutions, which include market risk, middle office operations, and investor and regulatory reporting services,” says Shapiro.
Other key new hires include William Linden as Director of Client Onboarding and Dhaval Shah as Director, Software Engineer. Linden oversees the transition of a client from the sales process through production delivery of services in both the cloud/support services business and the firm’s collaborative outsourcing business.  Shah supports the software development team by helping leverage and transform The Gravitas Platform into the leading platform-as-a-service solution in the asset management industry. 
“I am thrilled to welcome Jonathan, Bill, Dhaval and others aboard during this exciting and pivotal time, as we roll out The Gravitas Platform,” says Jayesh Punater (pictured), Gravitas Founder & CEO.  “As we continue to experience rapid growth as a firm, Gravitas remains dedicated to the development of our platform capabilities by hiring highly experienced and passionately dedicated professionals around the globe.”
