Aberdeen Standard Investments has appointed Tommaso Tassi as head of distribution for Italy.
The newly-created role has come into being following the merger of Aberdeen Asset Management and Standard Life Investments, completed last August.
Based in the group's Milan office, Tassi will be responsible for the commercial development of the company in Italy and will report to Ana Guzmán Quintana, head of sales for Southern Europe.
Tassi joined the Italian team of Aberdeen Asset Management in September 2015 as a senior business development manager.
He began his career in 2002 at the audit and consultancy firm PricewaterhouseCoopers, before moving to the asset management industry in which he has worked for over ten years.
In 2006 he joined Fidelity Worldwide Investment, as it was then called, as a senior sales associate, later rising to become sales desk manager.
