Peter H. Nachtwey was named CFO at Legg Mason, confirmed spokeswoman Mary Athridge.
He replaces interim CFO Terrence Murphy, who stepped in when C.J. Daley left Legg Mason in July to become CFO of Artisan Partners.
Mr. Nachtwey comes to Legg Mason from Carlyle Group, where he served as CFO. Christopher Ullman, director of global communications at Carlyle, couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.
Mr. Murphy will return to his previous role as a managing director and COO at Legg Mason affiliate ClearBridge Advisors.
