The Catalyst Family
At Catalyst we pride ourselves on building a culture where all involved - be it a Director, Advisor, Manager, Team Leader or Intern - are treated equally and given full transparency into the running of the business. Catalyst views its team as close family, and this runs deep in our culture and the way the business is run and managed.
Board of Directors and Advisors
Catalyst has a board of directors and advisors that is made up of high caliber industry leaders that provide the firm with governance, oversight, and advice. The board of directors is in the process of being formed and the group will be announcing further additions in due course.
The Catalyst Group was founded by four respected friends and colleagues with a collective mission to help its customers enjoy a seamless and user-friendly money management experience. The founders come with decades-worth of understanding and skill in fund administration, accounting, and private equity.
Head of Accounting & Finance
The Management Team
Catalyst is led by the Cayman Islands-based management team that today consists of 8 members. Over the coming months, Catalyst will announce the appointment of additional management team members to complete the team across the various functions of the group.
The management team report to John McCorvey and the board of directors, tasked with the mandate to hire and build a highly focused team aligned with the group's product and jurisdictionally focused solutions.
Catalyst's management team will invest heavily in local staff and in growing its own future stars through the implementation of a Cayman Islands-based internship and scholarship program.
