Ownership Matters, the corporate governance firm co-founded by Dean Paatsch, has hired Marty Chung to police small Australian companies.
Chung worked with Ownership Matters co-founders Martin Lawrence, Simon Connal and Paatsch at ISS/Risk Metrics.
“It’s the same team getting back together,” says Chung.
He says ISS underwent a “big cultural shift” when MSCI acquired the company.
“A lot of people started leaving ISS as the company became very U.S. centric,” says Chung.
Paatsch says he now has five full-time and three part-time staff.
“I’ll be looking for one more person, probably hired next year,” he says.
The future hire will do thematic research including corporate law and listing rules.
And what does Paatsch do?
“A bit of everything,” he says.
