EUROPE - The European Fund and Asset Management Association (EFAMA) is scouting for a director general.
The senior position was created following the broadening of the association’s membership to include corporate members.
EFAMA, who represented more than EUR 10 trillion in assets under management in 2004, is seeking a candidate who can successfully integrate with members, as well as major asset management clients, and provide overall leadership to strengthen the organisation.
Last month, Stefan Bichsel, member of the management board of Amsterdam based Robeco Group, was elected as president of the EFAMA.He succeeded Wolfgang Mansfeld from Union Investment in Frankfurt, who served as president of the association from 2002.
At the time, the group also appointed Mathias Bauer, managing director at Raiffeisen Capital Management (RCM) in Vienna, as vice president. Both were elected at EFAMA’s annual general meeting in Istanbul.
Last year, EFAMA changed their name from the Association of European Investment Funds and Companies (FEFSI) to reflect the organization’s growing asset management membership.
