Mark Johnson joins LGIM from BlackRock

Mark Johnson has been appointed head of institutional client management at Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM).

The role was previously filled by Chris DeMarco, who transferred internally to join Legal & General’s retirement business earlier this year.

Before joining LGIM, Johnson spent 19 years at BlackRock where he was latterly head of closed-end funds.

His previous roles at BlackRock included head of UK sales for iShares and head of BlackRock’s strategic team within the institutional client business.

Working across BlackRock’s institutional, retail and iShares divisions over the course of his career, Johnson has had responsibility for building client relationships with pension schemes, consultants, charities, and most recently, the non-executive boards of closed-end funds.

Johnson will oversee LGIM’s institutional client relationships in the UK.

He joins in September and will report to head of distribution, Sarah Aitken.
