Affiliated Managers Group, Inc. (the “Company”) today announced the appointment of Thomas M. Wojcik as its next Chief Financial Officer. Jay C. Horgen, President and Chief Financial Officer, will serve as CFO until no later than the announcement of the Company’s earnings for the second quarter of 2019, and will continue in his role as President of the Company thereafter. Mr. Wojcik will join the Company on April 22, 2019, as Executive Vice President, Finance, and upon his transition to Chief Financial Officer, he will oversee the Company’s finance, accounting, and capital management functions, including investor relations, reporting to Mr. Horgen.

Mr. Wojcik joins the Company from BlackRock, Inc., where he most recently served as Managing Director and Chief Financial Officer for Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), Head of EMEA Strategy, and Global Head, Investor Relations. Mr. Wojcik was also a member of the firm’s Global Operating Committee, Human Capital Committee, and EMEA Executive Committee. He previously served as Head of Americas Strategy and on the firm’s Americas Executive Committee. Before joining BlackRock in 2012, Mr. Wojcik was responsible for coverage of the financial services sector at Hunter Global Investors, a fundamental long/short equity hedge fund. Prior to that, he was an investor at Durham Asset Management, a distressed credit and special situations hedge fund, and at Nautic Partners, a middle-market private equity firm. Mr. Wojcik began his career as an investment banker in the Financial Institutions Group at Merrill Lynch & Co. He earned a B.A. in economics from Duke University and an M.B.A. from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

Pursuant to a letter agreement entered into with the Company on March 20, 2019, Mr. Wojcik will receive an annual base salary of $500,000 and will be eligible to receive 2019 incentive compensation determined by the Compensation Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Compensation Committee”) consistent with the incentive compensation practice for the Company’s other executive officers. Subject to the approval of the Compensation Committee, Mr. Wojcik will receive an award of restricted stock units of the Company to compensate Mr. Wojcik for amounts that he will forfeit upon his departure from his prior employer. No later than July 31, 2019, Mr. Wojcik will also be granted additional equity interests of the Company, in a form determined by the Compensation Committee and subject to the Company’s equity grant policy, with a fair value of $4 million, to further incentivize Mr. Wojcik and to align his interests with the long-term interests of the Company’s stockholders. Mr. Wojcik will also be eligible to participate in the Company’s health, benefit and retirement plans available to other executive officers.

There is no arrangement or understanding between Mr. Wojcik and any other person pursuant to which he was elected as an officer of the Company, and there are no familial relationships between Mr. Wojcik and any of the Company’s directors or executive officers.
