Ron Hanson has been appointed as GLC Asset Management Group’s new President and Chief Investment Officer (CIO). As President of GLC, Ron will be responsible for all of GLC’s investment management and business operations. Ron has held the role of GLC Asset Management Group’s CIO since 2014, and his succession to the role of GLC’s President ensures the strong continuity of leadership and asset management expertise required to continue the growth of GLC as a leading asset management firm.
Ruth Ann McConkey, will transition from her current as President of GLC Asset Management Group Ltd, to a newly-created role as Senior Vice-President, Investments, Great-West Life and Vice-Chair of Board of Directors, GLC Asset Management Group Ltd. She will have oversight of Great-West Life’s Commercial Mortgage division and serve as a key member of GLC’s Board of Directors where she will continue to consult on operational issues and actively advise on strategy formation for GLC.
In both cases, the appointment of these two senior asset management experts underscores the breadth of investment expertise and strength of leadership within Great-West Life’s family of asset management divisions. Ruth Ann and Ron will be transitioning into their new roles through to the end of the year as they further Great-West Life’s efforts to leverage and expand its investment capabilities to pursue new opportunities and meet the needs of Canadian investors.
