Kneip, a global leader in fund data management, is today announcing that it has appointed Nick Yeates as Chief Financial Officer. Kneip has ambitious plans to grow globally. To achieve this, Kneip is making significant hires in key areas, with Enrique Sacau appointed as CEO in July and now Nick Yeates as CFO.
Prior to his new role at Kneip, Nick was the Group CFO at Akinova, a ground-breaking electronic marketplace for insurance risk. Before, he was the Finance Director for Xchanging's Xuber insurance software division. He has also held senior positions in other large corporations, including Accenture and BT.
Nick will be based in Kneip’s London office but spend much of his time in its Luxembourg headquarters.
Commenting on his appointment, Nick Yeates says: “I’m thrilled to be joining Kneip at such an exciting time for the company. The Kneip name has been well respected across the industry for many years, and as it looks to increase its offerings and accelerate growth, this is a brilliant opportunity for a CFO to create significant value.”
Nick is replacing Ken Sommer, who has been Kneip’s Group CFO since June 2018. Ken has played a key role in Kneip’s development over the past two years and, although he has chosen to go into semi-retirement, will continue to have an active role in the company by remaining engaged as an adviser.
CEO of Kneip Enrique Sacau says: “I’m delighted that Nick is joining Kneip as CFO. He brings a wealth of commercial experience in the financial services sector, which will be key to Kneip and the plans we are putting in place for 2021 and beyond. Our key priority is growth and of course finance will play a fundamental role in that.
“I’d also like to thank Ken for the role he has played in Kneip’s success so far. Although I only joined a few months ago, Ken has become a trusted colleague, so I’m pleased that he will continue to play a role at Kneip, whilst getting to enjoy more time with his family.”
