By Verdict Staff

Investor services group IQ-EQ has appointed Joanna Macleod as its new group chief operating officer (COO).

As COO, Macleod will lead its global operations across all 24 jurisdictions and make sure that IQ-EQ has a sustainable, compliant and innovative operating platform in place to effectively cater to its expanding client base.

She will also work to accelerate transformation to fuel expansion across Asia and the US.

In addition, Macleod will collaborate with IQ-EQ’s chief technology officer Chris Robinson to deliver technology enablement across platforms, capabilities and client facing apps.

Her responsibilities will also include leading the Risk and Compliance function across the business.

Commenting on the appointment, IQ-EQ group CEO Mark Pesco said: “Joanna is a hugely welcome addition to our team. I know she has the operational expertise and experience required. Joanna is ideally placed to deliver on the next exciting phase of growth for the business as she is a specialist in delivering change for growing organisations.”

Macleod added: “I’m excited to have joined IQ-EQ at a time of organisational change and transformation. What attracted me to the role is IQ-EQ’s unique, disruptive, and entrepreneurial culture.

“The next few months looks set to be very exciting as I get stuck into delivering on the Group’s ambitious global growth objectives.”

In September this year, IQ-EQ named Alex Dean as the group’s first head of private wealth UK.
