BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--David Giunta, currently President and CEO of U.S. and Canadian Distribution for Natixis Global Asset Management, has assumed an expanded role as President and CEO for the U.S. and Canada. In his new role, Giunta has additional responsibility for the firm’s affiliated investment managers in the region while continuing to oversee distribution there. Giunta will report directly to Jean Raby, who is joining Natixis on Feb. 20 as CEO of Natixis Global Asset Management.
“Over the past nine years, David has steadily grown our U.S. business to become one of the top players in the market, and he will bring a great depth and breadth of experience to his new role that will help ensure a seamless transition,” said Laurent Mignon, CEO of Natixis.
Giunta joined Natixis Global Asset Management in January 2008. He previously worked at Fidelity Investments for 14 years, where he served as president of Fidelity Charitable Gift Fund, a donor-advised fund and one of the largest public charities in the U.S. He also headed Fidelity Charitable Services, a leading provider of administrative and other services to charitable organizations.
Giunta earned a BS degree in accounting from Bentley College in 1987 and an MBA from Boston College in 1991, and is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). He currently serves on the boards of trustees at Bentley University and The Partnership, Inc., the Board of Ambassadors for the Home for Little Wanderers, and the Boston Medical Center Philanthropic Trust Board.
Giunta will take over oversight of investment affiliates in the region from former President and CEO for the Americas & Asia, John Hailer, who has announced plans to retire from Natixis to dedicate himself more fully to public service and philanthropic work. Hailer will remain with the firm until the end of April to assist with the transition.
“In his 19 years at Natixis, John was instrumental in building a successful international distribution platform and fostering a global culture of teamwork and community involvement,” said Mignon.
Hailer is Chairman of the Board for the New England Council and the Back Bay Association and also serves as Trustee on several boards, including Boston Medical Center, Boston Public Library and the Newport Festivals Foundations.
