They weren't kidding. Vroom!
Yesterday, we reported
leaders were looking to hire a new head for intermediary distribution for Columbia
It turns out they were a bit farther ahead in that process than we thought. They have hired Joseph Kringdon
, previously EVP and Head of US Retail Distribution and Marketing for Pioneer
A spokesman for Ameriprise confirmed that Kringdon is scheduled to join later this month, reporting to Ted Truscott
, CEO of global asset management for Ameriprise. (GAM there also includes Threadneedle.)
