William N. Shiebler was named CEO in the Americas, a new position, by Deutsche Asset Management. He will oversee all asset management strategy and execution for North America and Latin America, which will incorporate the combined DeAM and Zurich Scudder Investments retail and institutional businesses once Deutsche Banks acquisition of Zurich Scudder is completed in April. Mr. Shiebler will report to Tom Hughes, DeAM president, and will join the firms global executive committee.
Mr. Shiebler retired as president and CEO of Putnam Mutual Funds in 1999. In the interim, he said, he has been working on managing his own investments, serving on several corporate boards and on a number of non-profit boards, one of which was the Salt Lake Olympic Committee.
