Simon Hudson-Lund has been appointed chief executive of International Financial Data Services.
He succeeds chief executive and executive chairman Charlie Eppinger.
The former chief operating officer joined IFDS as managing director in 2003 and has been successfully managing the day to day running since being promoted to chief operating officer.
Prior to this he was at Legal & General for five years as managing director, providing unit trust admin services.
Eppinger says: “I have had the privilege of serving as CEO and executive chairman of IFDS since its inception in 1995. It has been an exciting period as we have grown from a small start up company to the leading transfer agency in the UK. I have tremendous confidence in Simon and the management.”
Hudson-Lund says: “It is a great honour to take over from Charlie as CEO of IFDS, and lead the very strong management team he brought together. All of us at IFDS are excited about continuing to be at the forefront of the investor servicing industry in the UK.”
