Frankfurt/Dublin, 31.03.2022 – Hauck Aufhäuser Lampe Privatbank AG is proud to announce the hire of two highly qualified fund experts for the further development of its Irish subsidiary Crossroads Capital Management Limited (CCM). As of April 1st, 2022, Kevin Bardon will join as new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the company. He previously held various senior positions at Deutsche Bank, Bank of America, State Street Alternative Investment Solutions and Deutsche Capital Management Limited. In addition, as of May 16th, 2022, David O'Neill will join as Chief Operation Officer (COO) leading the operational development of our business in Ireland. He previously worked at The Asset Management Exchange as Head of Investment & Fund Services. Both appointments are subject to regulatory approval. 

Following the full integration of CCM into the Hauck Aufhäuser Lampe Group, the bank will increase the shareholding stake to 100 percent. In doing so, the private bank is pursuing the goal of increasingly offering its own fund services in an international context and thus increasing its brand presence beyond the German-speaking region. In this context, Donnacha Loughrey, who accompanied the acquisition and later the integration of CCM into the Hauck Aufhäuser Lampe Group, will be leaving the company by the end of April to pursue new challenges.

"Kevin Bardon and David O'Neill are experienced experts with whom we will promote the further development of CCM. Both colleagues have many years of market and management experience and are excellently connected within the Irish fund world. They are therefore ideally prepared to further enhance the growth of our Irish fund business and thus our location", says Holger Sepp, Member of the Management Board of Hauck Aufhäuser Lampe. "Ireland is the second largest European fund hub after Luxembourg and our Irish company is therefore a very important strategic element with regard to the international growth strategy of the Hauck Aufhäuser Lampe Group.
