Vanguard CEO Buckley to assume chairman role in January


Vanguard CEO Tim Buckley will succeed Bill McNabb as Chairman of the USD5.3 trillion investment management firm, effective 1 January 2019. He becomes the fourth chairman in the firm’s 43-year history.

Buckley (pictured), assumed the CEO position in January 2018, after serving in a number of senior management roles, including as the firm’s Chief Investment Officer from 2013 to 2017, head of Vanguard’s Retail Investor Group from 2006 to 2012, and Chief Information Officer from 2001 to 2006. Elected as a principal in 1998, Mr. Buckley joined Vanguard in 1991 as assistant to then-CEO John C Bogle. 
Buckley earned an AB in economics from Harvard in 1991, and an MBA from Harvard Business School in 1996. He served as chairman of the board of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia from 2011 to 2017.
“Tim has been a strong, focussed leader at Vanguard during times of tremendous company growth, as well as periods of significant market uncertainty,” says McNabb. “The Board of Directors and I have tremendous confidence in his ability to lead Vanguard through this next chapter for the firm.”
McNabb joined Vanguard in June 1986. He was named CEO in August 2008 and was elected Chairman in December 2009. Long active in the investment management industry, McNabb served as Chairman and Vice-Chairman of the Investment Company Institute, and was previously a member of its board of governors.
Buckley says: “Bill’s legacy is keeping our clients at the centre of everything that we do and supporting the development of our crew. Vanguard delivered unrivalled value under his leadership. He leaves our firm deep in talent and ready to give our clients the best chance of investment success.”
