Morrison & Co has hired a senior BlackRock executive to join its board as non-executive director. 

Geraldine Buckingham spent seven years as chair of Asia Pacific at BlackRock where she oversaw the firm’s business activities in China, Japan, Australia, Singapore, India and Korea. 

She also acted as a senior adviser to BlackRock chief executive, Larry Fink.

Prior to this, she held roles such as global head of corporate strategy and was a partner at McKinsey. 

She also works as an independent non-executive director at HSBC and Brunswick Group.

Morrison & Co’s chairman, Rob Morrison, said Buckingham’s appointment would help reflect the firm’s global footprint.

“We’re delighted to welcome Geraldine to our board. Following Kate Mingay’s appointment as a non-executive director last year, the addition of Geraldine means we now have a board that reflects the firm’s growing global footprint, with significant board experience across North America, the UK, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.”

Buckingham added: “I’m thrilled to be joining the Morrison & Co board at such an exciting time for the business. The firm has an impressive track record of investing in essential infrastructure that addresses the long-term needs of society while delivering strong returns for investors. I’m looking forward to supporting the firm at this pivotal point in its global expansion."

Morrison & Co is an alternative asset manager specialising in infrastructure, with US$18 billion ($26.8 billion) in funds under management.
