Jon W. Zindel was named CFO of American Century Investments, replacing Jonathan S. Thomas, who became CEO March 1, said spokesman Chris Doyle. Mr. Zindel was the firms senior vice president of finance, a position that will not be filled, Mr. Doyle said.
David C. Tucker was promoted to senior vice president of strategy and acquisitions. Mr. Tucker has been general counsel at American Century and supervised the team responsible for identifying and evaluating acquisition opportunities. With recent regulatory changes adding momentum to industry consolidation, the firm saw a need for a full-time executive position to look after acquisitions and strategy, Mr. Doyle said. Charles Etherington, who had been in charge of the firms legal and compliance matters, will replace Mr. Tucker as general counsel.
