Absolute return investment management firm Campbell & Company has appointed William Andrews as chief executive officer and Michael Harris as president with immediate effect.
These appointments coincide with the departure of Steve Roussin as president & CEO. According to the firm, Roussin is relocating to focus his attention on his family.

Before then he was managing director and head of investment solutions for UBS Wealth Management Americas, and was also a former president and COO of New York Life Investment Management.

Harris has been with the firm for over 12 years within the firm’s trading department and has served as director of trading since 2006.
Keith Campbell, the firm’s founder and chairman said, “Will and Mike have 27 years of collective Campbell experience. Their ability to guide our corporate culture and adapt with vision and foresight are without question. Campbell has never been managed by one key person, which is why we have been successful for over 40 years. Our systematic investment discipline allows us to function and collaborate across many people who bring unique skills to our process.”
Campbell & Company specializes in systematic managed futures and equity market-neutral strategies. Campbell and its affiliates manage $3 billion in assets for a broad array of institutional and private clients globally.
