US investment fund house, Pioneer Investments, has added a further member to its European team with the appointment of Marie-Laure Haley as vice president – global relationships.

Haley joins from Zurich Scudder where she was regional sales manager, vice president, responsible for the development of European markets and the sale of investment funds through the retail market.

In her new role at Pioneer, she will report to Jerome Thomas, head of global relationships Europe and develop new partnerships with global institutions and reinforce existing relations with third party funds distributors in Europe such as the recent agreement with Prudential.

Commenting on Haley’s appointment, Thomas said:
“We are delighted to welcome Marie-Laure to Pioneer Investments. We have very aggressive plans to develop our global network of distributors. Her experience to date will add tremendous value to existing and future partnerships.”

Pioneer this week also lured Dominik Kremer from Fidelity to become the new general manager for the firm’s German office in Munich.
