Fred Hubbell was put in charge of global coordination of international pensions of Dutch insurer and money manager ING Group NV, Amsterdam. This is a new position designed to coordinate pension operations that until now have been run on a country-by-country basis, said Peter Jong, ING spokesman. Mr. Hubbell is in charge of ING's operations in the Americas as chairman of the executive committee of ING Americas and also will assume responsibility for global coordination of ING Investment Management, Amsterdam. The new duties begin in July and follow a shuffling of responsibilities of the group's Amsterdam-based executive board. Mr. Hubbell joined the ING executive board in 1997 after ING acquired Equitable of Iowa, Des Moines; he was CEO of Equitable.
