Scudder Kemper Investments CEO Edmond D. Villani created the office of the chief executive to serve as his support team. Named to the new office were Bob Rudell, former head of Scudder Kemper Retirement Services; Lynn S. Birdsong, director of the institutional group; and Cornelia M. Small, director of the global equity group.
While Mr. Birdsong and Ms. Small will keep their current positions, Mr. Rudell will not. He will be replaced by Lorie C. O'Malley, previously director of KemStar, which offers broker-sold mid-market retirement plan products. The firm is searching for Ms. O'Malley's replacement.
