PFPC, a mutual fund transfer agent and accounting and administrative service provider, announced earlier this month that it has strengthened its executive team with two promotions and a new hire. The appointments follow the firm's recent naming of Timothy Shack as president and chief executive officer.

Stephen Wynne has been promoted from executive vice president to chief operating officer. Wynne is not replacing anyone, as PFPC has been without a COO for several years, said Jeanette Harrison-Sullivan, a company spokeswoman. Wynne joined PFPC in 1997. As COO, he will be responsible for sales and marketing and will oversee the management of PFPC's core services and client relationships.
