Aberdeen Asset Management has poached well-known financial services leader to work with its largest clients.
John Campbell will join Aberdeen in early January as global head of strategic clients. He played an active role during the banking crisis as chairman of trade body Scottish Financial Enterprise and spent the last 16 years as a director at State Street. Mr Campbell was awarded an OBE in 2008 for services to the financial services industry.
Jeff Klepacki, who has a 23-year track record with organisations including Capital Group, Delaware Investments and Allianz Global Investors, will also join early in the New Year as head of distribution – Americas where Aberdeen manages around $65billion (£51.5billion).
Separately Antony John, former chief executive BNP Paribas Investment Partners/FundQuest, and Richard Pursglove, who has held senior distribution roles at a number of companies, will join on a consultancy basis to work with senior management on driving forward Aberdeen’s distribution strategy.
