Managing Director and Head of Global Funds,
Merrill Lynch Global Wealth Management
A 13-year Merrill Lynch veteran, Erin Donnelly
holds the keys to the brokerage's fund platform. She is in charge of Merrill Lynch's domestic and offshore mutual fund, money fund and ETF businesses.
Though the thundering herd has thinned amid the turmoil stemming from last year's Fed-arranged
shotgun wedding between Merrill Lynch and Bank of America, Merrill remains a powerful source of distribution
for fund firms. How the exits of Bob McCann and more recently of Dan Sontag, and the arrival of Sallie Krawcheck would impact the brokerage's culture and direction would be interesting to see.
Donnelly, who joined Merrill Lynch in 1996, has occupied leadership roles in the managed asset product realm, including global relationship management, product management and marketing. She worked in
insurance and banking before joining Merrill.
