RELATED TOPICS​

Comgest, an international asset management partnership focused on long-term growth, has appointed Ian Lewis as Head of Investor Relations and David Rowe as Head of Marketing & Investor Services.

Lewis has over 30 years’ experience in the industry and joins Comgest from Nikko Asset Management where he was the Global Head of Investment Proposition and Consultant Relations. Previously he worked for a number of UK based asset managers in a variety of senior management distribution roles.
 
Rowe has over 20 years of global marketing experience and was previously Global Head of Marketing at Jupiter Asset Management.  Prior to that he worked at Neuberger Berman, Pimco and Threadneedle Asset Management.
 
Lewis and Rowe will both report to Chief Operating Officer Jan-Peter Dolff and jointly replace Philippe Lebeau, Comgest’s previous Head of Investor Relations and Marketing. Philippe is transitioning to a new role at the firm where he will work on a number of strategic projects.
 
Arnaud Cosserat, CEO, Comgest, says: “On behalf of our clients and our partnership at Comgest, I would like to express our sincere gratitude to Philippe for building our client and investor relations team over the last decade. His tireless commitment to clients and collaboration across the firm has allowed us to build many long-lasting and meaningful relationships, characterised by extraordinary client loyalty and trust. As he transitions to work on strategic projects at the firm, we welcome both Ian and David to build on Philippe’s strong foundations and to further our partnership with clients.”
 
Lewis says: “Comgest has a successful approach to responsible, quality-growth investing. The consistent application of this philosophy over the years, coupled with the firm’s independence and broad-partnership structure allows Comgest to focus on what matters most: clients’ long-term interests. I look forward to working with David and all my Comgest colleagues to continue with Philippe’s work for existing and new clients who share Comgest’s vision.”
 
Rowe says: “Comgest has an exceptional partnership culture which enables it to apply a singular, responsible investment approach to its outstanding range of equity strategies. The pandemic has highlighted the critical role that digital channels play in communications and the importance of understanding clients’ changing motivations and needs. I look forward to helping Comgest as it continues to develop the highest quality of timely, relevant and engaging communications and servicing for its clients.”
