Here at Paradigm Governance Partners, we are delighted to announce the promotion of two key staff within our growing team, as we continue to bolster our offering and develop talent from within.

Laura McGeever, previously a Fund Services Manager, has been promoted to Director in our fund services team subject to approval by the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority and the Caymanian Status & Permanent Residency Board. Laura, who has been with Paradigm since our early days, has played an important role in the direction and growth of the firm.

Laura is a Fellow of The Chartered Governance Institute, a Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist and holds the Accredited Director designation granted by the Institute of Chartered Secretaries of Canada. Laura also serves as a director on the Boards of alternative investment funds including hedge funds, fund of hedge funds, and private equity vehicles. She is a Professional Director registered pursuant to the Cayman Islands Directors Registration and Licensing Law, 2014.

In addition, Jessica Samadi, previously a Client Accountant/Administrator at Paradigm Governance Partners, has been promoted to Manager – Accounting and Operations, in recognition of her expertise, hard work and dedication since she joined the business.

Prior to joining Paradigm, Jessica worked at KPMG. During that time, she worked on some of the island’s largest enterprise companies as well as taking the lead in various captive audits.  Jessica is a qualified CPA and has demonstrated her talents and skills for both Paradigm and various clients in a manner that has exceeded expectations in the midst of her career progression.

Geoff Ruddick, Partner, said: “We are delighted to announce the promotions of both individuals, who have worked so hard and with such dedication to the business during a time of growth and the transition of the business from being a true start-up to an established firm in Cayman.

“Laura has been at the heart of that transition, taking additional responsibility for many areas of the business at times, in addition to her core roles, and doing a fantastic job. She has always been motivated and dedicated to do the best job possible. Equally, Jessica is a fantastic talent who is developing incredibly fast. Her attention to detail and work ethic is second to none.”

“It is wonderful to develop talent from within and we hope they will both have long and successful careers with us.”
