Kneip, the fund data management company, is today announcing that it has appointed Enrique Sacau as CEO, with current CEO, Neil Ward, stepping away to focus on the growth of his own consultancy.  

Under Enrique Kneip will continue to deliver innovative digital solutions to the Fund Industry, which is going through rapid change. His extensive experience in delivering growth with technology and digital services compliments Kneip’s own digital transformation and  commitment to being  a trusted partner that supports clients to grow and navigate complexity. 

Enrique joins Kneip from Equiniti Plc, recently rebranded as EQ, a leading specialist in technology, payments and financial services that operates in regulated markets. There he has served as CEO of the Digital division focusing on the provision of technology and data services. Prior to EQ, he was the MD for Europe at FNZ, the private-equity backed leading B2B wealth management company. He started his career at Xchanging, which he joined after completing his PhD at the University of Oxford.  

Commenting on his appointment, Enrique, says, “Kneip has a longstanding reputation of delivering trusted and innovative solutions to the financial services market and I’m delighted to be joining as CEO. The company has made huge strides in its digital transformation and I’m looking forward to finding ways to continue the great work that Neil and the rest of Kneip have done and help build the next stage of the company’s growth.”  

The transformational investments made over the last three years have turned Kneip into a true digital business. Key highlights include: 

·        Launch of the data management platform to capture, enhance and share fund data 

·        Launch of the Kneip Academy to focus on knowledge and learning 

·        Deployment of a central CRM system to consolidate all operational activity 

Commenting on the news, Neil Ward, says: “My time at Kneip has been wonderful. I’m proud of what the team has achieved and am very optimistic about the future for Kneip under Enrique’s leadership. I’d like to thank Bob Kneip for the opportunity to lead the business and I wish Enrique, the Board, and the team the very best.” 

Kneip’s Chairman, Hugues Delcourt, says, “We’re delighted to welcome Enrique as our new CEO. He joins with a great reputation and valuable experience and we’re excited about the future under his leadership. As we look ahead, I’d like to place on record my sincere thanks to Neil for his hard work and commitment to Kneip and all the transformational work he and the team have carried out.”
