Rob Bluzmanis has been promoted from head of wholesale sales to head of distribution for Australia with immediate effect.
His appointment follows the resignation of Eddy Schipper who is leaving the firm in August.
Mr Bluzmanis previously worked at Blackrock in a number of roles before joining Nikko AM in January 2015.
Sam Hallinan, managing director of Nikko AM, said Mr Bluzmanis’ 20 years of experience had demonstrated how instrumental he was in building up and maintaining the success of Nikko’s wholesale sales strategy.
“Rob’s appointment comes at a time of strong growth in the Nikko AM business, and his proven success in leveraging his relationships to grow the business will stand him in good stead in this new role.
“Rob’s experience and expertise mean he is ideally placed to continue to build on the already strong efforts of the Australian distribution team and to capitalise on business growth and momentum we are seeing in the market.”
