Paradigm Governance expands its fiduciary team


Paradigm Governance Partners, which offers independent director services, distressed fund and value recovery services and outsourced accounting services, has hired an experienced fund professional as manager - fund services to assist the business in its rapid growth.

Its directors provide complementary skillsets ranging across all aspects of the alternative investment industry, including risk management, legal, regulatory, audit, accounting, compliance, valuation, trading and recovery.

Geoff Ruddick said: “We are pleased that our service model and approach to corporate governance has been well received. We continue to attract talent with a diverse skillset and are thrilled to have Laura join us as her depth of experience will further strengthen our fiduciary team.”

Laura McGeever said: “I am excited to join a high-pedigree governance firm where I am able to support and complement the fiduciary team.”
