Managing Partner – The Panel Search and Selection, and Co-Chair 100 Women in Finance (Dublin)
Anne Keys, Managing Partner, leads The Panel’s executive search in the Funds and Investment Management sector and is uniquely placed to partner with firms in hiring executives, board members and independent non-executive directors.
Anne works with a large number of the investment firms establishing a presence in Ireland following the Brexit vote and international Fund Administration firms based in Ireland. She has had great success sourcing Country Heads/CEOs, PCF/Head of function and DP roles for her clients.
Anne’s key differentiator is her extensive network developed over 24 years in recruitment and her technical knowledge of the roles she recruits for, in the funds and investment management space. She provides consultancy advice on the talent landscape, talent availability and is hugely knowledgeable on the sourcing requirements driven by the CBI under CP86.
Anne has a personal interest in diversity and inclusion. She was instrumental in the set up and launch of 100 Women in Finance in Ireland and is Co-Chair of the steering committee in Dublin. She is driving 100WF workshops for their executive female members, advising them on how to launch their independent non-executive director careers. Through 100Women in Finance, Anne works closely with her committee to organise educational events on broad topics such as ESG, diversity on boards, Financial planning for women, mentoring/coaching and soft skills.
Anne has been invited to speak at key industry conferences in Dublin, London, and Amsterdam on “CP86 Dear Chair – Getting the plan right”, “The talent landscape in Investment Management sector in Ireland”, “The War for Talent”, “The benefits of an international board” and more recently at Irish Funds Dublin conference on “The Modern Workplace - Corporate Culture in the Hybrid Environment”.
She is also an individual and corporate sponsor of basis.point, the Irish Fund industry’s initiative to come together to help make a difference to those in need.
