Dublin, Ireland, February 2, 2016 – Brown Brothers Harriman is pleased to announce that Eoin FitzGerald has joined the firm as a Managing Director and Country Head for BBH in Ireland, effective January 2016. He reports to BBH Partner and EMEA co-head, Jean-Marc Crepin.

Mr. FitzGerald joins BBH from Morgan Stanley where he served as a Managing Director and senior member of the Fund Services Global Leadership team, which included oversight of the firm’s Irish operation. With over 20 years of industry experience, Mr. FitzGerald is a long standing member of Irish Funds (previously the Irish Funds Industry Association), and a member of the IFSC Funds group and Clearing House groups in the Department of the Taoiseach.

Mr. FitzGerald’s appointment follows the news in September 2015 that BBH has appointed fellow Irishman Seán Páircéir as Global Head of Investor Services, the first time this key role has been held by an individual outside of the United States.

Brown Brothers Harriman Trustee Services (Ireland) Limited (“BBHTS”) provides trustee, depositary and global custody services, as well as access to foreign exchange, currency hedging, securities lending and technology solutions via its parent company, Brown Brothers Harriman & Co.("BBH & Co"). Brown Brothers Harriman Fund Administration Services (Ireland) Limited (“BBHFAS") also offers Fund Accounting, Administration and Transfer Agency services to collective investment schemes out of its Dublin office.

"We are very pleased to welcome Eoin to BBH as both a leader of our Irish business and a senior contributor to our global team,” said Jean-Marc Crepin. “With assets in Irish domiciled funds growing over 50% in the past 3 years1, Ireland is a cornerstone for asset managers with global distribution objectives. BBH is committed to supporting Ireland’s growing role in this global industry and to sourcing the local senior talent and expertise that allows us to generate trusted, valued, differentiated partnerships with our clients. We look forward to helping our clients capitalize on new opportunities in this important market."

Eoin FitzGerald added, “I could not be more excited to join Brown Brothers Harriman. The firm has a longstanding reputation for excellence within and outside the cross border fund community, and I see tremendous opportunity for growth going forward.”
