John Carmody joined Aviva Investors as London-based global strategy director for financial institutions.
The position is new.
Mr. Carmody will effectively serve as the “architect” of Aviva’s broad-based relationships with client financial institutions, both in the U.K. and globally, Erich Gerth, executive director and CEO of global business development, said in an interview.
Mr. Carmody came from BlackRock in London, where he was a director of business development, institutional wealth management for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, according to an Aviva news release.
A BlackRock spokeswoman couldn’t immediately say whether Mr. Carmody will be replaced.
