Neuberger Berman snags ING COO/CIO from ING, David Eckert to be Global Head of Infrastructure

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

David Eckert
Opalesque Industry Update - Neuberger Berman, one of the world’s leading employee-controlled money managers, said David Eckert has been named global head of infrastructure, effective June 1. Mr. Eckert, who has 18 years of corporate technology and operations experience, comes to Neuberger Berman from ING, where he was global chief operating officer/chief information officer for its investment management and insurance business.

At Neuberger Berman, Mr. Eckert, 45, will report to Andrew Komaroff, chief operating officer, and work closely with the existing senior leadership of the firm’s information technology and operations groups.

“David Eckert brings deep and highly relevant experience to Neuberger Berman, supporting our mission of partnering with clients to achieve their unique investment objectives,’’ Mr. Komaroff said. “Our strong IT and operations capabilities have been critical to our success and we are eager for David to build upon this strength in this newly created role.”

“I am excited to join a firm with a rich history as a pure-play asset management firm,’’ Mr. Eckert said. “Neuberger Berman understands that the back office is really the front office—that investing in IT and operations capabilities bears directly on a firm’s ability to deliver for clients.”

Before joining ING in 2008, Mr. Eckert spent 15 years in a series of increasingly responsible operations and technology roles with JP Morgan Chase, rising to chief information officer for its investment management business.
