Don Ezra was named chairman of global knowledge management at Russell Investments.
The position is new, as is Russell’s global knowledge management group which he will oversee, according to a Russell news release.
Mr. Ezra would head research efforts and with the new group will enhance the firm’s reputation for offering “timely, thought-provoking viewpoints,” Russell CEO Andrew Doman said in the release.
Mr. Ezra, who has been with Russell for more than 25 years, will retain his current title of co-chairman of Russell Global Consulting and Advisory Services.
“The global knowledge management group will expand the scope and publication frequency of our research and deepen our global bench of contributors so that Russell can continue to bring new ideas to the marketplace that will start conversations and spark innovation,” Mr. Ezra said in the release.
Russell spokesman Matt Burkhard did not return a phone call requesting more information by press time.
