RELATED TOPICS​

iM Global Partner appoints Jamie Hammond as deputy CEO – head of distribution for EMEA. 

He will support the continued growth of the company with direct responsibility over the business development of the group in Europe, reporting to Philippe Couvrecelle, founder and CEO of iM Global Partner.

Before joining iM Global Partner, Hammond was CEO of AllianceBernstein Limited (UK) and head of the EMEA Client Group. He joined AB in January 2016, with responsibility for sales, marketing and client service functions in the EMEA region. Prior to this, he spent 15 years with Franklin Templeton Investments, most recently as the CEO of their UK regulated entities and managing director, Europe.

Hammond joined Franklin Templeton in 2001 following the acquisition of Fiduciary Trust Company International, where he was the sales director responsible for mutual fund development in Europe. Before this, Hammond was national sales manager for Hill Samuel Asset Management, the asset management arm of Lloyds TSB Group. Jamie has over 30 years’ industry experience.

Given iM Global Partner’s ambitious plans to grow assets under management to USD150 billion by 2030, Hammond’s seniority and experience will be instrumental in supporting iM Global Partner to become an essential player of the asset management industry in Europe.

Philippe Couvrecelle, founder and CEO of iM Global Partner, says: “Our ambition is to have a powerful impact on the distribution market in Europe and the appointment of Jamie will allow us to achieve this goal. Beside Jose Castellano who leads international distribution with a focus on US-Offshore, Latin America and Asia-Pacific, and Jeff Seeley who leads US distribution, the addition of Jamie creates an incomparable strength of iM Global Partner as an impactful worldwide distributor for our partners.”

Castellano says: “After having built solid foundations in Europe with local presence across the region, I am pleased to hand over Europe to Jamie to consolidate and expand what we have already developed and take the company in this core market to the next level, while refocusing on other key markets where we also need to set up a strong footprint.”

Jamie Hammond, deputy CEO – head of distribution for EMEA, adds: “iM Global Partner has enjoyed very impressive growth since it was formed by establishing long-term partnerships with ‘best-in-class’ asset managers. I am delighted to be joining iM Global Partner, to work with Philippe and the team, in order to bring these strong and distinctive investment capabilities to clients in the EMEA region and to help expand the business further.”
