Natixis adds retirement strategies vice president

Marla Skeffington was named vice president of retirement strategies at Natixis Global Asset Management, the company announced Thursday.

It is a new position. She will be responsible “for business development for the Natixis Sustainable Future Funds, the recently launched target-date funds offered by Natixis, and supporting the firm’s growing defined contribution and personal retirement business efforts,” said a news release.

The target-date series — which emphasizes environmental, social and governance investment criteria — was launched in February. A Natixis spokeswoman didn’t provide additional information.

Ms. Skeffington previously was head of client services, U.S. intermediaries, at T. Rowe Price. Katrina Clay, a T. Rowe Price spokeswoman, said in an email Ms. Skeffington was succeeded by Cheryl Pipia, who had been hired from BNY Mellon in December.
