Bill Wilby was named senior investment officer and director of equities at OppenheimerFunds. The position has been vacant since Kurt Wolfgruber was promoted to CIO in April 2000, said spokeswoman Jeaneen Pisarra. Mr. Wilby was senior vice president, director of international equities and portfolio manager of the Oppenheimer Global Fund. He will continue to manage that fund with Rajeev Bhaman, who also co-manages Oppenheimer Development Markets Fund. George Evans, the portfolio manager of the Oppenheimer International Growth Fund, will take over as director of international equities, involving the administrative, marketing and personnel activities for the global team.
