UK - David Paterson has left his position as head of corporate governance at JPMorgan Asset Management after five years to take up a similar role at the National Association of Pension Funds (NAPF).
In his new role, Paterson will head up NAPF’s corporate governance policy development and high level engagement with companies, and will replace Geoff Lindey, who retired after a three year term.
He will also assume the director of research position at RREV, the association's venture with Institutional Shareholder Services.
Christine Farnish, Chief Executive of the NAPF, said combining the RREV director of research role with the NAPF role meant that they could work more seamlessly on voting recommendations and on engagement in future.
Paterson will take up his new post in April 2006.
