Horizons ETFs Management has tapped former BlackRock director Michael Fardy as executive vice president and head of sales for Horizons USA.
Fardy is an investment industry executive with nearly two decades of experience in business development and strategic relationship management. While at BlackRock, he was responsible for expanding the presence of the iShares exchange-traded funds across the northeastern United States.

The group has approximately $7 billion in assets under management and 180 ETF listings worldwide.
