GLG Partners' corporate bond funds has a new man at the helm.

Jon Mawby was named manager of the GLG Strategic Bond and GLG Corporate Bond funds. He succeeds Christophe Akel, who left the firm for personal reasons, Man said. Akel took over from Brigitte le Bris in 2009.

"We conducted a rigorous search process for the right manager for these funds, which form a key part of the wider GLG credit platform," Steve Roth, head of GLG's credit and convertibles platform, said. "With his 12 years of experience in the credit markets, track record in terms of performance and industry reputation, Jon was the outstanding candidate."

Mawby was most recently lead credit portfolio manager for multi-asset offerings at ECM Asset Management.
