Vector Hires COO – A Note from Vector’s Leadership

Vector Hires COO

We are so excited to bring Kristina Dayback on board to the Vector AIS team! When I met Kristina earlier this year, I knew almost immediately she was the right person to bring on board to lead our engagement team and help us to strengthen our operational functions as we continue to grow and support our clients. Kristina and I are aligned in the vision for Vector to reinforce ourselves as a fund administration provider for our clients, utilizing our technology to bolster our people-first service, not replace it. Her institutional knowledge and determination to build a better fund admin is a massive gain for the Vector team and our clients! (Also pretty awesome to be one of the only fully female-led admins in the market)! As COO, Kristina will focus on streamlining administrative processes to ensure the seamless delivery of timely, accurate, and personable client services. We are more motivated than ever to continue to cultivate a culture of continuous learning, mentorship, and professional development, and build a team of skilled experts capable of handling the complexities of closed-end fund administration.
