Blue Sky appoints new chief executive

— 1 minute read

A former property investment management has been announced as the next chief executive for Blue Sky Alternative Investments. 

Joe Cann

Joel Cann, formerly of Aspen Group, will join the firm in April as it looks to rebuild from a difficult 2018. 

Mr Cann has worked at Aspen for the past two and a half years, restructuring the organisation and its operation. 


He previously served in senior positions at JP Morgan and Aberdeen Asset Management. He said he would focus on Blue Sky’s core business first. 

“I am looking forward to rebuilding market confidence in the company’s ability to drive strong returns for its investors.

“In the short term, the priorities are to continue to strengthen business processes while building solid momentum in the company’s core business units.”

Blue Sky executive chair Andrew Day said that Mr Cann’s experience with rebuilding business would prove invaluable for the firm’s next phase of business. 

“We are confident that Joel has the right combination of experience in asset management and rebuilding businesses to lead the company through its next transition,” Day said.

The appointment is the latest for Blue Sky who previously appointed a new chief risk officer and chief financial officer.
