Who's Staying, Who's Leaving Among Van Kampen Execs?

As reported by The MFWire on Monday, David Linton, Van Kampen Investments' sales chief, has left the firm, and that product and marketing head Elizabeth Hughes Eginton, has joined Morgan Stanley Smith Barney.

Turns out they're not the only high-level executives who won't be joining Invesco, whose purchase of Morgan Stanley's retail asset management business, including Van Kampen, is set to close in the middle of the year.

"Jerry Miller has informed me of his decision to leave Van Kampen following the completion of the sale of our retail asset management business to Invesco," Morgan Stanley's Stu Bohart wrote in a January 13 memo to employees. "In order to ensure that we maintain a seamless transition and integration process, Jerry will continue to lead Van Kampen through the close of the Invesco transaction, which is expected to occur in mid-2010."

Andrew Schrerer
Van Kampen

For his part, Brian O'Connell, who runs the internal sales and support for national accounts at Van Kampen, will head up the internal sales desk dedicated to the wirehouse and broker-dealer channel at Invesco Aim.

From: Stu Bohart

Jerry Miller has informed me of his decision to leave Van Kampen following the completion of the sale of our retail asset management business to Invesco. In order to ensure that we maintain a seamless transition and integration process, Jerry will continue to lead Van Kampen through the close of the Invesco transaction, which is expected to occur in mid-2010.

As President and CEO of Van Kampen since 2008, Jerry has made significant improvements to Van Kampen’s overall platform – driving considerable development and enhancement of the product line; building on the firm’s world-class distribution network and long-standing client relationships; and increasing recognition of Van Kampen in the marketplace as an investment performance leader. While Jerry has led Van Kampen, performance across investment strategies has substantially improved, with the majority of our equity assets performing above the Morningstar median in the 1-, 3-, 5- and 10-year time periods.

Jerry’s contributions have helped to position the business well for future success with our partners at Invesco, and we are excited about the opportunities ahead for our fund shareholders and employees.

Please join me in thanking Jerry for his dedicated service to Van Kampen, its clients and its people and wishing him well in his future endeavors following the close of the transaction.
