London-based asset manager Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM) has named former BlackRock executive Mark Johnson as head of institutional client management. 

In his new role, Johnson will be responsible for managing LGIM’s institutional relationships in the United Kingdom, according to an article by FTSE Global Markets. He assumes the position in September and will report to head of distribution Sarah Aitken. 

Johnson was most recently with BlackRock, where he spent 19 years and was head of UK Sales for BlackRock’s iShares family and also head of BlackRock’s strategic team within the institutional client business. He replaces Chris DeMarco, who assumed a new role within LGIM’s retirement unit earlier this year.

Founded in 1970, LGIM is among Europe’s largest money managers. The company manages more than £900 billion in assets for a wide range of global clients, including pensions, sovereign wealth funds, institutions and retail investors.
