International fund administrator, the Aztec Group, has appointed Ore Adegbotolu, Dan Kalish and David Naab to new leadership roles as part of its strategy to accelerate growth in its US business.
Aztec opened its doors in the US in May 2021, specialising in the provision of fund and corporate accounting and administration services to the private equity, venture capital, infrastructure, real estate and private debt sectors.
Ore Adegbotolu joins the Group as Head of US Markets, Dan Kalish as Director – US Real Assets and David Naab as Head of US Operations.
Aztec Group Chief Executive & Founder, Edward Moore, said that the appointments are a clear demonstration of the Group’s commitment to the US market. “The US is a key region in our strategic growth plan. We are excited by the opportunity to grow our business through our commitment to a client-centered approach and market-leading technology which, when combined, we believe will help to deliver an unrivalled service to our clients.”
As Head of US Markets, Ore Adegbotolu will oversee and execute Aztec’s growth plan, playing a key role in growing our US client base and business. He will also play a leading role in providing senior coverage to the Aztec client base in the US. Ore joins the Group having spent 13 years as a corporate and investment banker, leading multi-regional client-facing teams and covering large cap clients based in the US & EMEA.
“I am excited by this opportunity to build upon the strong foundations that have been put in place, as we look to accelerate our growth plans across North America,” Ore said. “Our approach of combining the expertise of our specialist teams with market-leading technology is one that I believe will be valued by our clients in the US.”
Dan Kalish’s appointment as Director – US Real Assets is a recognition of significant growth opportunities, as Aztec looks to lean into the favorable, long-term trends in the US market. As the Group’s most senior US-based Real Assets professional, he will drive the expansion of its client service teams in the US. Dan brings more than 25 years of experience in building and leading teams that provide global financial and regulatory reporting solutions for alternative investment products.
Dan commented: “The US Real Assets market presents vast growth opportunities to both Aztec and our clients. I am delighted to be joining at such an exciting time in this journey, as the Group seeks to emulate the market-leading success it has achieved across Europe.”

David has more than 15 years’ experience in the asset management industry and will be responsible for building out the operational infrastructure to support the Group’s US expansion plans to bring Aztec’s first-class client service delivery to the US market.
“I am honored to be joining Aztec at this very exciting time. I look forward to further building out our US platform as we embark on our ambitious growth plans and roll out exciting new offerings to our market leading and client-centric service model to our existing and future clients in the US,” added David.
