KRyS Global names new CEO

KRyS Global, which provides corporate recovery, asset tracing, insolvency, forensic accounting and business advisory services, has announced the appointment of Timothy Ward as its new chief executive officer.  

Mr. Ward’s appointment allows the firm to focus its resources, reinforce the existing management structure and enable former CEO Kenneth Krys, who will become executive chairman of the firm, to direct his attention to the strategic, business development and risk management elements of the business, the firm stated. 

Mr. Ward is an attorney with experience in leading and growing entrepreneurial companies, particularly those in the financial services and technology sectors. With 20 years’ legal and financial background, he has excelled in motivating management and focusing their efforts consistent with the firm’s vision and global objectives, KRyS Global said.  

The firm has also appointed Sarah Kelly as global head of Human Resources. Ms Kelly joins KRyS Global from a leading global law firm based in the U.K., where she was head of Human Resources. She practiced as a corporate solicitor for five years before moving to a career in HR.  

Mr. Krys said, “We are thrilled with having Tim and Sarah join our team. As we continue to grow, we need to ensure we have the skills and resources not only to keep up with our competitors but to exceed them.  

“The extensive experience that Tim and Sarah will bring to the firm will add tremendous value to the existing infrastructure as we develop into the leading offshore firm in corporate recovery and insolvency services.”
