Pioneer Investments has appointed Lisa M Jones as head of the US.
She will serve as president and chief executive officer of Pioneer Investment Management USA, the US division of Pioneer Investments.
Jones will be a member of Pioneer’s global leadership team and will report to Sandro Pierri, chief executive officer of Pioneer Investments. She will start on 11 August and be based in Boston.
Jones has over 25 years of experience in financial services, including multiple leadership roles in which she was responsible for developing and building asset management businesses. She joins Pioneer Investments from Morgan Stanley Investment Management (MSIM), where she was global head of distribution and president of MSIM Distribution.
Prior to MSIM, she was head of the global institutional division at Eaton Vance Management and spent more than 16 years at MFS Investment Management where she held leadership roles in both the retail and institutional divisions.
She has been an active member on a number of boards, including the Foreign Policy Association in New York, the Board of Fellows at Trinity College, Hartford, Ct, and the Advisory Board of the Institutional Investor Institute.
“Pioneer Investments’ US division is a critical and integral component of our global strategy, and Lisa’s hiring is an important step forward in accelerating the growth of our already strong US business,” says Pierri. “Lisa is a proven performer in distribution and overall product and business strategy, and is an energetic, results-driven leader. Her experience and leadership skills will be significant assets in helping us achieve our growth objectives in the US.”
Jones replaces Daniel K Kingsbury, who will remain at Pioneer until 5 September to assist with the transition.
