NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Lenox Park Solutions, Inc. (“Lenox Park” or the “Company”), a leading collaboration and data analytics financial technology firm, announced today that veteran finance professional Amber Kizilbash has joined the company as its Chief Operating Officer, joining the firm’s Executive Management team based in New York City.
Kizilbash, who served in various leadership roles at Société Générale, including Executive Management Committees for Société Générale Americas and Lyxor Asset Management, was most recently Head of the Financial Institutions Group Americas for Corporate and Investment Banking at Société Générale in New York. Previously, she served as Global Head of Sales & Client Strategy at Lyxor Asset Management, in Société Générale’s Paris headquarters. During her time at the firm, she held positions developing strategies for the firm’s top clients and launching strategic initiatives to grow market share and revenues across the Alternatives, Solutions, Capital Financing and Structured Finance businesses. Kizilbash has also held positions at Standard Chartered and ABN Amro in Dubai and has twice been recognized in the honor roll of Top 100 Most Influential Women in Financial Services by Financial News.
Kizilbash is expected to contribute to the strategic agenda and further institutionalize the operations of Lenox Park, including oversight for regulatory compliance, cyber security, client relationship management, and business development. In addition to these responsibilities, Kizilbash will work particularly closely with Co-Founder & CEO, Jason Lamin, on human capital development as the firm expects measured, but meaningful growth in its staff of engineers, data scientists and finance professionals to support the growth in customers.
Lenox Park, which provides virtual platforms for peer collaboration, data aggregation, and data analytics primarily to the financial services industry, has experienced extraordinary growth over the past 12 months. In the arena of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (“DEI”) data analytics, the firm has secured notable public pension clients including CalPERS, New York State Common Retirement Fund, Mass PRIM, New York State Teachers’ Retirement System, and State of Rhode Island Treasurer’s Office. Lenox Park has also become the preferred DEI analytics provider for Foundations & Endowments assessing their asset manager relationships. In the Fall of 2020, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and Kresge Foundation announced a partnership with Lenox Park to promote an industry standard for how to aggregate and assess DEI data. Since then, the Company has added peer foundations including The Rockefeller Foundation, Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, Lumina Foundation, and Nellie Mae Education Foundation, to name a few. University Endowments have also adopted the firm’s technology tools to assist in data and analytics around DEI in their investment portfolios.
“Amber’s experience and deep understanding of the ecology of financial services are an invaluable addition to our company, and her leadership here will only broaden the aperture through which we view markets and develop best in class technologies to serve our clients,” said Jason Lamin, Co-Founder & CEO. “Along with her many credentials and qualifications as a business builder and operator, Amber’s cultural sensibilities, her worldly perspective, and her impressive record and commitment to inclusion also provided a clear line of sight for my co-founder Christopher Finley and I to see how much she could contribute to the Company.”
“I’m thrilled to join Jason Lamin and the pioneering team at Lenox Park during this period of rapid growth, and I look forward to helping shape the future of the firm,” said Amber Kizilbash, COO. “At this significant inflection point in the financial services industry and the broader markets, Lenox Park has proven itself as a change agent and a leader in the DEI space. I’m inspired to represent the company’s powerful analytics and collaboration platform, in the service of a game changing mission, to a widening circle of partners and clients.”
