Hugh Cutler was named executive vice president and head of global distribution at Affiliated Managers Group, a spokeswoman said.
Mr. Cutler will replace Andrew Dyson, who was appointed CEO of Quantitative Management Associates in October.
Mr. Cutler will join March 1 and will be based in London. He will be responsible for managing AMG's global distribution platform, including its centralized institutional and retail capabilities around the world.
“Given (Mr. Cutler's) experience in leading multiregion distribution efforts for global asset managers across the full spectrum of asset classes and investment disciplines, and track record for developing and managing highly effective sales teams across multiple geographies and channels, we look forward to his contributions to the continued long-term success of our global distribution franchise, including through the development of potential new strategic avenues and regions of coverage going forward,” said Sean M. Healey, chairman and CEO of AMG, in a news release.
Mr. Cutler was a managing director at Och-Ziff Capital Management Group. He set up the business and product strategy for Europe and led all client-facing activities for the region, the news release said. A spokesman for Och-Ziff declined to comment. A person familiar with the situation said his responsibilities will be handled by existing staff.
AMG has $730 billion in aggregate assets under management.
