Daniel Kelly will replace Ellen Griggs as chief operating officer of Massachusetts-based investment consultant NEPC (formerly New England Pension Consultants).
Kelly comes to NEPC from Union Bancaire Privee Asset Management, where he served as global chief risk officer. Prior to that, Kelly had spent 17 years at Harvard Management Company in a variety of posts including chief risk officer. Early in his career, Kelly worked at State Street Bank and Franklin resources.
Said NEPC Managing Partner Mike Manning: “We are extremely excited that Dan is joining NEPC. Risk measurement, analytics and monitoring are areas of increasing focus for NEPC and our clients. Dan’s background at Harvard Management will allow him to make key contributions in those and other areas.”
Manning also paid tribute to Griggs, who will retire in June after 10 years’ with NEPC, including four as COO, saying they were “fortunate to have Ellen as our first COO. She played a very important role for us as the firm grew over the last four years. We wish her the best of luck going forward.”
In his new role, Kelly will directly report to Manning and oversee the performance measurement group, the information technology team and many of the integrated services platform initiatives. Kelly will also work closely with Steve Charlton, director of consulting services, on the operational aspect of NEPC’s delegated and discretionary services platform.
