Robert Harrison was appointed CEO of BNP Paribas Investment Partners USA Holdings as well as CEO of both of that holding company's money management subsidiaries, BNP Paribas Asset Management and Fischer Francis Trees & Watts.
Mr. Harrison assumes the CEO positions for BNP Paribas Investment Partners USA Holdings and BNP Paribas Asset Management from Michel Anastassiades, who remains with the group in the Paris-based role of global head of business development, said Laura Manley, a Chicago-based spokeswoman with BNP Paribas. The CEO position at FFTW has been open since Deborah Hazell left last year.
Previously, Mr. Harrison served as CEO of BNP Paribas Investment Partners Australia. He has been replaced in that role by David Grybas, who will retain his previous responsibilities as head of institutional business development.
