Janus Capital Group hires global head of technology and operations


Janus Capital Group has named George S. Batejan as senior vice president, global head of technology and operations.

Batejan will be responsible for all middle and back office operations globally, including technology.

Reporting to Janus chief executive Dick Weil, Batejan will set direction for the firm’s technology and operations, aligning that vision with the business strategy.

“We are fortunate to have someone of George’s calibre joining Janus in this important position,” says Weil. “Not only do we and our clients benefit from his breadth of global experience in the industry, but I’m most excited about how well his experience fits with where we are going as a firm in both the advisor and institutional marketplaces.”

Prior to joining Janus, Batejan was senior vice president and chief information officer at Evergreen Investments.

He has more than 30 years of global technology and operations experience in the financial services industry, including serving as executive vice president and chief information officer for Oppenheimer Funds and 18 years at The Chase Manhattan Bank, where he served in positions ranging from vice president and division executive for the Americas’ service delivery group, private banking, to vice president and chief information systems officer, Asia.

“I see many opportunities in this role at Janus as I strongly believe that technology and operations can provide a solid foundation by which the firm can grow and expand,” says Batejan. “The last several years have obviously been challenging for the asset management industry but I’m convinced that Janus is well positioned to be a leader in the field and I am excited to be a part of its future.”
