A Putnam news release said the latest Fidelity
alums appointed to senior Putnam posts included Clare
Richer and Andra Bolotin, who are joining the firm as
Senior Managing Director and Chief Financial Officer, and
Managing Director and Controller, respectively.
According to the Putnam announcement, Richer brings more than 25 years experience, where her previous work has included Chief Financial Officer from 2005 to 2007. Most recently, she served as Executive Vice President of Fidelity Management & Research Company.
Bolotin, who will report to Richer, was most recently Senior Vice President and CFO, Developing Business Group and CFO of Fidelity HR Services. Previously, she rose through a series of executive roles with Polaroid Corporation to become that company’s Treasurer.
“We are very pleased to add such experienced,
top-quality leaders to our management group at Putnam,”
said Reynolds. “I have known and worked with Clare and
Andra for many years. Individually, and as a team, they
bring us exceptional analytic and strategic skills.”
Earlier this month, Putnam, himself a Fidelity alum, recruited Jeffrey R. Carney, previously President of Bank of America’s Retirement and Global Wealth and Investment Client Solutions Group, to head its global marketing and product development (see Fidelity Alum Carney Joins Reynolds at Putnam ).
Recently, Reynolds announced a major restructuring
of the company’s equity investment unit (see
), a focus on individual fund manager accountability and
a performance-linked compensation plan.
