Resnik joins Estera in Bermuda

Damian Resnik has joined the Bermuda office of professional services firm Estera as client and operations director.

Estera, which provides funds, corporate and trust services, said Mr Resnik will serve as a director for a portfolio of clients and assume responsibility for the management of service delivery, operational activities and organisational strategies.

Mr Resnik has more than 30 years’ experience in international and financial services in Bermuda, having held senior positions at a number of major businesses in the jurisdiction, Estera said, including vice-president of fund operations at a fund administrator, chief compliance officer at a hedge fund manager, and ILS manager and head of Bermuda investment compliance at a global investment management company.

Alison Dyer-Fagundo, managing director at Estera in Bermuda, said: “As Bermuda continues to move forward and enhance its reputation as a highly respected and successful financial centre, we are pleased to have someone with Damian’s invaluable knowledge and influence in the industry joining the company.

“Damian will also be an essential addition to the Bermuda office in his operational capacity as we invest in processes which allow us to serve our clients more effectively.”

James Maitland, regional head of Americas, Bermuda and the Caribbean for Estera, added: “Damian’s formidable operational and technical acumen, coupled with his demonstrated strategic leadership will be vital as we continue to invest and support our clients, partners and markets in an ever-evolving world.

“His leadership will play a critical role as we expand our capabilities across the region, including the United States as we are resolutely focused on enhancing our service experience and adding value to our clients.”

Mr Resnik’s appointment follows recent senior leadership additions including that of Mr Maitland, who joined from BNY Mellon, and Herbert Roth, head of business controls Bermuda, who joined from General Electric.
