Van Kampen Investments has appointed Managing Director, David Swanson, as COO, the firm said late last week. Swanson will report to Mitch Merin, president and COO of the firm’s investment management division.

Swanson will continue to serve as the firm’s chief marketing officer, reporting to Steve Liguori, who serves as a managing director and chief retail marketing officer. Before joining Van Kampen in 2000, Swanson worked as a managing director and director of marketing at Scudder Kemper Investments.

In addition, Ed Wood, also an executive director, will now serve as Van Kampen’s chief administrative officer. He will report to Swanson and will continue to serve as COO for the Van Kampen fund client group.

The firm oversaw more than $65 billion in assets as of Sept. 30.
