Lombard Named CEO of Alternative Investment Analysts’ Group

Dec 16 2010 | 3:25pm ET

Florence Lombard has been selected as CEO of the Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst Association.

Lombard will replace current CEO E. Craig Asche in January 2011.

“Florence brings more than 20 years of experience as a strong advocate for the alternative investment industry,” said Asche. 

Lombard also served, until December 2008, as CEO of another industry group, the Alternative Investment Management Association, where she oversaw the development and implementation of projects in the areas of education, research, regulation, and sound practices. She was instrumental in developing AIMA’s presence in Asia, which led to the creation of the Hong Kong/China, Australia, Japan and Singapore chapters. 

Lombard has lived and worked in the UK, France, Switzerland and throughout the Asia-Pacific region. With this new appointment, she will relocate to the United States.

“I am honored to have been selected to lead the CAIA Association into the next era,” said Lombard.

The CAIA Association is an independent, not-for-profit global organization founded in 2002.
