Aberdeen Standard Investments has named Tommaso Tassi as head of Italy distribution.
Tassi, who will be based in Milan and reporting to head of sales for Southern Europe Ana Guzmán – will be responsible for the company’s business development in Italy.
He joined the Italian team of Aberdeen Asset Management in September 2015 as a senior business development manager. With some 10 years’ experience in the asset management industry, Tassi joined in 2006 Fidelity Worldwide Investment where he worked as a senior sales associate and later became sales desk manager.
Tassi began his career in 2002 at the auditing company PricewaterhouseCoopers.
This appointment is framed within the new structure of the group resulting from the merger between Aberdeen Asset Management and Standard Life Aberdeen, completed last year in August.
Ana Guzmán Quintana, Head of Sales – Southern Europe at Aberdeen Standard Investments, said: “I’m sure that Tommaso will lead our company to the place it deserves in the Italian market as a global leader in the asset management industry with a cutting edge approach. He is a great asset to our global strategy and his skills and knowledge will strengthen the strong commitment of Aberdeen Standard Investments in Italy.”
