BlackRock has appointed Andrew Landman as the new head of Australasia, effective from June. He will replace Dominik Rohe who has taken over as head of the Latin America region.
At the same time, Landman would continue his existing role as head of Asia Pacific client business until a replacement is found.
In his new role, for which he would return to Sydney from Hong Kong, Landman would continue to report to Geraldine Buckingham, BlackRock’s chair and head of Asia Pacific.
“Andrew’s in-depth local and regional experience, as well as his global connectivity with clients and partners, will help position BlackRock to continue growing its business, while helping clients navigate an increasingly more complex world,” she said.
“I look forward to working with Andrew to bring about even greater client engagement and serve them with a differentiated investment experience.”
Landman joined BlackRock six years ago, first leading the alternatives distribution business in Sydney, before moving to Hong Kong to lead distribution efforts throughout Asia Pacific.
Prior to joining BlackRock in Australia in 2012, he held leadership, client and financial roles including as CEO at Ascalon Capital Managers, a subsidiary of BT Financial Group, plus roles with BT Financial Group, Challenger Funds Management and Bankers Trust.
