Aberdeen signs up Columbia Threadneedle’s Fleming

Fleming joins from Columbia Threadneedle where he has held the dual role of EMEA chief executive and global chief operating officer. He joined Threadneedle from JP Morgan in 2009 as head of distribution.

He will be responsible for Aberdeen’s global distribution platform encompassing 450 people across business development, product specialists, marketing and client service. He will also work closely with the Aberdeen senior management across the business.

Fleming succeeds John Brett who stepped down from the role late last year. He will report to chief executive Martin Gilbert and will join Aberdeen’s group management board.

“We are delighted to attract someone of Campbell’s calibre - this reflects the appeal of our global platform and our full-service capability across asset classes and strategies,” said Gilbert. “After an in-depth worldwide search process, Campbell was identified as the outstanding candidate given his expertise and experience across client channels globally, including North America which is a key focus for us.”

Chief executive of Columbia Threadneedle Ted Truscott said: “Campbell made many contributions during his six years with the organisation, including expanding our distribution capability and further strengthening our position in the marketplace.  As a member of the leadership team, he helped to establish our global business.  Throughout his time here Campbell has been an advocate for our active management approach and investment track record, as well as our client-focused culture. We wish Campbell every success in the future.”
