HarbourVest Partners appoints CFO of firm’s management company

HarbourVest Partners, a global private markets asset manager, has appointed Rob MacGoey as the chief financial officer (CFO) of the Firm’s Management Company. 

MacGoey will work alongside Karin Lagerlund, current CFO, who will focus on client and fund accounting, treasury and capital markets.

“As our Firm has continued to grow, our corporate finance and fund administration function has increased in size and complexity,” says John Toomey, Managing Director, HarbourVest Partners. “To support our future growth, we made the decision to split the finance function between the funds, under Karin’s continued leadership, and the management company, under Rob’s leadership. This change will allow us to continue to scale our business and serve the needs of our clients.”

MacGoey was previously chief accounting officer and controller at Apollo Global Management. Prior to his time at Apollo, Rob held several senior positions at PricewaterhouseCoopers’ Financial Services Assurance and Advisory Practices.

“Demand for accounting and administrative support is growing and becoming more complex in nature,” says Lagerlund. “Splitting our finance functions will allow us to continue to devote the appropriate attention and focus to each side.”
