Mark D. Burgess was named global co-head of equities at Credit Suisse Asset Management, a new position. Mr. Burgess had been head of equities at Insight Investment since March; a spokeswoman at Insight said he would be replaced. Previously, Mr. Burgess was CIO at American Express Asset Management.
Mr. Burgess will work alongside CSAM's other global co-head of equities, Greg Sawers, who started a year ago. The global CIO post was split into three positions after a restructuring last June, according to a spokeswoman. Dennis Schaney was named global head of fixed income last September, and Jack DiMaio was named global head of alternatives.
