Westwood has appointed Mark A Wallace as chief financial officer.
His 30 years of experience in senior financial officer roles were gained at several companies, including high growth NYSE corporations.
Wallace is highly experienced in dealing with complex SEC reporting issues, capital markets, global tax and treasury matters, mergers and acquisitions, and technology solutions.
Westwood’s former chief financial officer, Bill Hardcastle, will focus on the growth of Westwood’s domestic and international fund business and will provide leadership in other corporate development and strategic initiatives.
Brian Casey, Westwood’s president and chief executive, says: “We are very pleased to add Mark to the Westwood team. His wealth of experience as a senior financial officer for growing organisations will bring tremendous value to Westwood as we continue to execute our growth strategy. We would also like to express our gratitude for Bill’s contributions as CFO over the last seven years; he will continue to be an integral part of the Westwood team in his new role.”
