Mercer, a global consulting leader in advancing health, wealth and career, and a wholly owned subsidiary of Marsh & McLennan Companies (NYSE: MMC), appoints Campbell McCulloch to the newly created senior leadership role of Head of Fund Implementation, Delegated Solutions Pacific, the first of three new senior leadership positions, as Deputy CIO retires.
Mercer Pacific’s Chief Investment Officer, Kylie Willment said the newly created role of Head of Fund Implementation, Delegated Solutions is the first appointment of three new senior leadership roles and follows the retirement of Deputy CIO, Phil Graham.
“A significant focus has been getting the right structure in place to support and strengthen the Pacific Portfolio Management team,” said Ms Willment. “While it’s with mixed emotions that we say goodbye to Phil, the appointment of Campbell is a fantastic win for Mercer.”
In addition to Campbell’s appointment, Mercer will be looking to add two additional senior roles in the portfolio management team, Head of Investment Strategy and Head of Portfolio Management.
Mr McCulloch joins Mercer from the Future Fund Management Agency where he has held the role of Head of Investment Operations for the past eleven years. Prior to the Future Fund, Campbell spent eleven years at Vanguard Investments in a range of portfolio management and operations roles.
“Campbell’s outstanding leadership skills and proven track record will enable Mercer to efficiently implement our investment decisions, further cementing our ability to maximise the outcomes for our investors and clients,” said Ms Willment.
In this newly created role, Mr McCulloch will be responsible for leading the implementation of investment decisions for the Mercer Pacific Funds and will be a core part of the senior leadership of the Mercer Pacific Portfolio Management team.
As Mercer welcomes the first of the three new leaders, Mercer also announces the retirement of Deputy CIO, Phil Graham.
Having been a part of the investment industry for 20 years, eleven years of which have been at Mercer, Phil has played a pivotal role in advancing and reshaping the industry. He has also been a strong contributor to the professional standards of the industry through his 15 years involvement with the CFA Institute.
Since joining Mercer in 2007, and in his current role as Deputy CIO for Delegated Solutions in the Pacific, Phil has made an incredible contribution to the success of the Mercer Funds. On behalf of Mercer, Ms Willment thanked Mr Graham for his dedication and commitment.
“Phil is highly respected by colleagues and peers and will be greatly missed. We are extremely proud of all that he has achieved in his time at Mercer and wish him well,” said Ms Willment.
