State Street Global Advisors has appointed Greg Ehret to a newly created position as global chief operating officer. Ehret, currently based in London and a 20-year SSgA veteran, will assume the position effective immediately. Mike Karpik, senior managing director, will assume Ehret’s current responsibilities as head of EMEA.
As a result of executive musical chairs, Jamie Kase, head of sales and marketing for SSgA has left the firm. Aside from that fact, there was no further mention of Kase, who served in his former role for three years, in the firm’s release.
