Mirae Asset Global Investments (USA) Appoints Peter P. Graham, Robert P. Mulligan and Robert E. Shea

Mirae Asset Global Investments Co. announced that three veterans of its U.S. business have been elevated to new roles. Effective immediately, Peter P. Graham is chief executive officer, Robert P. Mulligan is president, and Robert E. Shea is chief operating officer of Mirae Asset Global Investments (USA).

Graham and Mulligan assume the positions previously held by Joon Kwun, who is relocating to Seoul to assume a senior management position leading the firm’s business development initiatives across Asia.

In addition to his new position as chief executive officer of Mirae Asset USA, Graham retains his role as president of the Mirae Asset Discovery Funds and continues as head of marketing and product development. First recruited to MAGI’s U.S. business in 2009, he spearheaded the firm’s entry into the U.S. mutual fund market and built out its U.S. product line and marketing initiatives.

In addition to his new position as president of Mirae Asset USA, Mulligan retains his role as head of sales and distribution, the firm’s U.S. retail and institutional efforts. He was recruited by Mirae Asset USA in 2010 as head of strategic relationships. He was named head of retail sales and distribution in early 2012 and assumed the role of head of sales and distribution later last year.

Shea joined Mirae Asset USA in 2009 as head of finance and operations. -PrimeNewswire
