The Alternative Investment Management Association has hired a former Barclays senior executive to be its new chief executive officer.
The London-based organization announced Monday that Jack Inglis, who was a member of Barclays’ Global Executive Committee for Prime Services, will replace Andrew Baker as the organization’s CEO. The appointment follows the announcement in June that Baker, who has been CEO since 2009, was stepping down from the role.
Inglis will begin his new role in the beginning of 2014.
Inglis was previously the CEO of Ferox Capital, and also spent 16 years at Morgan Stanley where he was co-head of its European prime brokerage unit.
A global representative of the hedge fund industry, AIMA has more than 1,300 corporate members and over 6,000 individual contacts worldwide.
