Opalesque Industry Update: Man Group plc, the global alternative investment manager, has hired John Rohal as Executive Chairman of Man, North America. John will work with Man’s fund managers to enhance Man’s range of offerings for the US. Reporting to Manny Roman, President and COO of Man, John will also work closely with Eric Burl and Lance Donenberg, respectively COO and Head of Sales for North America, to deepen Man’s relationships with institutions, foundations, family offices, intermediaries and other key client constituencies.

“John is a veteran of our industry whose expertise will help drive the business forward in a region where Man’s range of investment capabilities brings tremendous value to clients. As a seasoned investor and allocator who has also been an institutional client of the firm, John is exceptionally well-placed to work with institutional investors in the US to better understand their needs and deliver the appropriate investment management solutions," said Peter Clarke, Man CEO.

“I am delighted to be joining Man. I have had a long professional relationship with the firm and its people and it is an exciting challenge to come on board and help take the business forward here in North America. Man is a unique organization combining scale, breadth of products and global reach with headquarters in London and people located in major financial markets around the world. Further exposing North American investors to these capabilities will be part of a long term relationship-building process," said John Rohal.
