Corvus Group is delighted to announce that Karen Sands has joined the board as a Non-Executive Director.

Karen is the Chief Operating Officer of the Federated Hermes Private Equity business and brings a wealth of fund operations and accounting experience to the Corvus Group, advising the board on matters of corporate strategy, governance and the optimisation of systems and processes to maximise client delivery through the provision of a quality service.

Corvus co-founder James McCarthy comments, “Karen’s appointment is a significant step forward for the Group. With a wealth of experience in fund operations and accounting, Karen will provide the board with an invaluable insight into the challenges faced by fund COOs and CFOs and the expectations of fund LPs, which in turn will help us to optimise our services and systems to better address our clients’ needs”.

Fellow co-founder Andrew Brizell adds, “Being such a highly respected figure in the private equity industry, we’re thrilled that Karen has accepted a Non-Executive Director position. Karen brings a new depth of experience to the Corvus Group board and, with her guidance, we look forward to bringing fund solutions to the market which maximise value, operational resilience and efficiency from a client’s perspective.

Karen is a fantastic addition to the board which will really help to drive the Group forward”, says Corvus Group’s Head of Fund Administration, Dave Bridger. “I’m very much looking forward to working with her as we refine our systems and service offering and as we look to scale our business over the coming months.

Karen adds: “I have known James and Andrew personally for a number of years and worked closely with Corvus Advisory between early 2020 and mid-2021. I know that James and Andrew have been looking to launch a fund administration business for some time, so it’s great to see them bring Corvus Administration to the market.  I’m excited to be working with them again and look forward to helping them and Dave realise their vision for a truly modern, advisory-led and technology enabled administrative solution”.
