Lakehouse Capital has hired Rob Prugue as a non-executive director.
Prugue spent 15 years as chief executive of Lazard Asset Management-Asia Pacific and five years as head of research at van Eyk prior to that. He had also worked at AMP Investments and NSW State Super.
Originally from Washington DC, he had lived in Australia, Japan and Singapore.
Lakehouse, which was based in Sydney, was founded in 2016 and offered the Lakehouse Global Growth and Lakehouse Small Companies fund.
Donny Buchanan, CIO and co-founder of Lakehouse Capital, said: “I am delighted that Rob is joining the Lakehouse Capital board. It is evidence of the growth of the business and the serious commitment we take to strong governance. We already have a highly experienced board but the addition of Rob will bolster our insights around investment research, distribution and back office governance and standards”.
Prugue said: “Lakehouse is at a growth stage of its business and I look forward to contributing to its fiduciary oversight, as well as to the ongoing strategy and growth of the business”.
