Nick Ring, CEO EMEA at Columbia Threadneedle Investments, will retire at the end of 2023 following a long and successful 34-year career in the investment industry. As a result, David Logan, Global Chief operating Officer at Columbia Threadneedle, will be appointed to the new role of Head of EMEA and Global Business Operations, subject to regulatory approval.

Nick Ring joined Columbia Threadneedle as CEO, EMEA in 2019, having previously been Global Head of Product for seven years. Over the past four years he has managed the regional business through the Covid pandemic and the successful acquisition and ongoing integration of BMO’s EMEA asset management business in 2021.

David Logan has over 17 years’ experience in asset management and has a breadth of knowledge and expertise having held roles across operations, finance and distribution. He joined Columbia Threadneedle in 2021 as part of the acquisition of the EMEA asset management business of BMO and since that time has been an integral part of the EMEA leadership team as well as overseeing global operations. Prior to his career in asset management, David spent 12 years in the accounting profession advising asset managers, holding partner roles at Deloitte and Andersen.

Nick will be retiring at the end of 2023 following a thoughtful and orderly transition to the new leadership structure that will take place over the next six months. David will report to Ted Truscott, CEO of Columbia Threadneedle Investments, who will be working closely with David and Nick during this transition.

Ted Truscott, CEO at Columbia Threadneedle Investments, said: “Nick has had an outstanding career in the investment industry across a variety of distribution, product, strategy and leadership roles. We thank him for his substantial contribution to our organisation and to our clients, and we wish him well for his retirement. “David is a strategic thinker, a strong people leader and has an excellent understanding of our business. Columbia Threadneedle’s business in EMEA has grown significantly over the past two years and I know that under David’s leadership we will continue to strengthen our business within the region and I am excited about the opportunity ahead for our clients and the firm.”
