Threadneedle Investments has recruited former Shell International head of corporate identity Judy Everett to take over the position of head of communications.
Everett will be responsible for Threadneedle’s PR and communication and will replace Richard Eats who will be retiring from Threadneedle in April this year.
Everett will be responsible for the effective communication of the Threadneedle brand, products and services across all of the principal markets in which Threadneedle operates.
She will be part of the senior marketing team reporting to marketing director Denis Tumbült.
Tumbült says: “Threadneedle’s business continues to expand in retail, institutional and alternative investment markets. We have been looking for a communications professional with strong international experience and a real sense of how to take the management of our brand forward. Judy Everett has just the expertise in these areas that we have been looking for and she will make a strong addition to our team.”
Everett says: “Threadneedle is developing its brand and growing its business rapidly in both its established markets and new areas in and outside Europe. This is an exciting time to be joining the company and the financial services sector. I look forward to playing a part in developing Threadneedle’s business and market presence.”
