The Alberta Investment Management Corporation has appointed Roger Renaud to its board of directors.

Most recently, Renaud was president for Canada and global chief operating officer of Manulife Asset Management, where he oversaw the integration of Standard Life Investments into the firm.

“As AIMCo continues to evolve as a global investor, it is important that the board continues to attract top calibre talent — individuals with deep experience in the investment management industry and pension plans,” said Richard Bird, chair of the AIMCo’s board, in a press release. “Mr. Renaud is an accomplished executive with a strong track record of investment management leadership and international experience. On behalf of the entire board of directors, we welcome Roger and look forward to working with him to delivering lasting value to our clients and to all Albertans.”

Renaud has also been a director of the capital development fund Fonds de solidarité FTQ since 2018.
