ProShares, a provider of exchange traded funds (ETFs), has appointed Richard Morris as general counsel. He will report to ProShares Co-Founder and CEO Michael L Sapir and serve on the company’s executive management team.

“Rich’s legal aptitude and his deep experience in the ETF industry make him a perfect fit for the general counsel position,” says Sapir. “His leadership will be important as we continue to develop innovative ETF solutions that meet the evolving needs of investors.”

Morris brings to ProShares more than 20 years of legal experience in asset management. Most recently, he served as partner at law firm Morgan Lewis & Bockius LLP.
