Columbia’s CEO Kim Lew to Receive Lifetime Achievement Award by Alicia McElhaney
Bloomberg Wealth with David Rubenstein: Columbia’s Kim Lew
Institutional Investor will honor Kim Lew, president and chief executive officer of the Columbia Investment Management Company, with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the fourth annual Allocators’ Choice Awards on September 22 in New York.
Columbia named Lew as CEO of its $11 billion fund in September 2020 following an “extensive” national search. She joined the endowment office from the Carnegie Corporation in New York, where she had worked for 13 years, most recently as vice president and chief investment officer.
Lew started at Carnegie as a director, working her way up to become co-CIO and, eventually, the endowment’s sole investment chief. While at Carnegie, she developed an investment team, built out a focus on alternative investments, and prioritized diverse fund managers.
In 2019, asset owners named Lew as Institutional Investor’s CIO of the Year in recognition of her work at Carnegie.
As a Lifetime Achievement Award winner, Lew will join others who have earned the distinction, including Massachusetts Pension Reserves Investment Management Board executive director and CIO Michael Trotsky(2019), Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust CIO Roz Hewsenian (2018), and California State Teachers’ Retirement System CIO Chris Ailman (2017). To read more go to the link below:
