Campbell Fleming joins Aberdeen Asset Management

Handshake 3Campbell Fleming, the regional chief executive for Columbia Threadneedle Investments, has resigned from the firm and joined Aberdeen Asset Management.

His resignation comes about a year after the UK’s Threadneedle Investments merged with Columbia to create the world’s 30th largest asset manager with €404 billion of assets under management.

Fleming – who was most recently Columbia Threadneedle’s CEO for Europe, Middle East and Africa, and also group chief operating officer – joins Aberdeen as global head of distribution.

Ted Truscott is the global CEO at Columbia Threadneedle and said Fleming had made “many contributions” during his six years with the firm to establish a global business.

Fleming will report directly to Martin Gilbert, the chief executive of Aberdeen, and he replaces John Brett who stepped down from the role last year and is now a non-executive director at the firm.
