ETF sponsor WisdomTree has promoted Morgan Lee from its US office to become head of distribution for its European operations.

Lee will be supported by sales teams covering the UK, as well as France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, the Nordics and Switzerland.

Joining WisdomTree in 2006, Lee has most recently been based on the US’s West Coast as a regional director of distribution, where he built relationships with financial planners, wealth managers, family offices and asset managers.

Previously he worked in business development with iShares, then part of Barclays Global Investors, before its acquisition by BlackRock. He also worked in a similar role at Franklin Templeton.

WisdomTree’s European head David Abner says Lee is one of the most “seasoned” salespeople at WisdomTree and played an important role in building the US business. “He brings to Europe a wealth of knowledge of the ETF industry and best practices when it comes to working with investors,” Abner says.
