Trafelet, Hazeltree’s Founder and Board member.

“Hazeltree has been a pioneer in the asset management industry, innovating treasury and liquidity management solutions for hedge funds and private markets firms,” said Tushar Amin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hazeltree.  “Now the value our solutions provide is becoming even more critical as the financial environment changes, and I’m looking forward to seizing this moment to realize even greater success for all of us at Hazeltree.”

Tushar takes over from Doug Haynes, who has served as interim Chief Executive Officer of Hazeltree since October 2021. Doug will continue with Hazeltree as Executive Chairman.
