UK - Morley Fund Management has announced several key changes to the structure of its board.
The fund manager says the key structural change is the appointment of two deputy CEOs which will enable Keith Jones, CEO of Morley, to focus on implementation of Morley’s strategic plan and building Morley’s external market profile and forging strong client relationships.
The role of the deputy CEOs will be to concentrate on the execution of Morley’s business.
Gerard Quirke, formerly managing director Europe, will take on the role of deputy CEO and chief financial officer, with responsibility for finance, compliance and legal.
Malcolm Le May, formerly managing director international, will move to the role of deputy CEO and managing director Europe.
Morley says creating a pan- European business is a key element in its plan within which the priorities include developing much stronger distribution capability across Europe and, where appropriate, working closely with CGNU’s European asset management businesses.
Dean Stannard will move from his role as head of compliance, to the role of MD international, where he will focus on the development of Morley’s business activities in the Americas, Asia and the Pacific Rim.
Mike Gould takes up the role of head of compliance, reporting to Gerard Quirke. Before joining Morley, Gould spent 12 years with the FSA, most recently as manager of the product assessment team within the collective investment schemes department.
Other Board positions remain unchanged with Gerald Holtham as CIO, Jan Nuttall as managing director human resources and David Tremblay as global COO.
