Here at Paradigm Governance Partners, we are excited to welcome on board a new addition to our team who bolsters the expertise and experience in our compliance team at a critical juncture in the firm’s growth.

Kenneth Adumekwe joins Paradigm as Head of Compliance after serving for several years as the Head of Regulatory Services at Paget-Brown Trust Company, providing a range of regulatory compliance services. He also fulfilled a number of leadership roles at the firm, including responsibility for internal audit, compliance, internal risk management and ensuring its directors remained abreast of emerging regulatory developments and risks.

He will head up the Compliance team at Paradigm supported by Tanya Jamieson, Fiduciary Support Coordinator, and other members of the Paradigm team. His appointment will also allow Laura McGeever, recently promoted to Director from her role as Compliance Officer, to focus on her core responsibilities and clients.

Before Paget-Brown Trust Company, Kenneth worked for the Maples Group and DMS as a Senior Vice President and Director for Compliance Services respectively. Kenneth also spent 10 years as the Director for Risk Management at KPMG in the Cayman Islands where he was responsible for the firm’s risk, ethics and compliance function.

Kenneth has over 20 years of international experience providing corporate governance and compliance solutions to a diverse range of Investment structures for international clients. He is an Associate of The Chartered Governance Institute, holds an International Diploma in Anti Money Laundering from the International Compliance Association and holds an LLB (Hons) degree in Law and Politics from Cardiff University.

Geoff Ruddick, Partner, said: “I am delighted to welcome Kenneth into the Paradigm family. He arrives at a critical moment in our growth, and I am delighted to be able to bolster the depth of expertise in our compliance team with an executive of his experience. As regulatory requirements become ever more complex and nuances, we can now rest assured we will remain on top of all such developments. I would also like to thank Laura, who has taken the lead on compliance for a long period and has done a fantastic job.”
