VC O'Hanley to succeed CEO Hooley at State Street
November 7, 2017

State Street Corporation today announced that Jay Hooley will retire as Chief Executive Officer by the end of 2018 after more than 30 years with the company and will remain as Chairman throughout 2019. State Street's board of directors has appointed Ron O'Hanley, previously Vice Chairman of State Street and president and CEO of State Street Global Advisors, to President and Chief Operating Officer. O'Hanley will succeed Hooley as CEO.

State Street says that under Hooley's leadership, it has expanded globally and established itself as a leader in digitization, positioning the company to succeed in the 21st century economy. Since 2010 when Hooley became CEO, State Street's total shareholder return is approximately 130 percent.

"Our most significant differentiator at State Street will always be our people, and my greatest source of pride over the past eight years has been to lead this talented 36,000-strong team," said Hooley. "I am very confident that Ron has the right qualities, expertise and vision to lead the next phase of State Street's growth. Ron brings tremendous passion and energy to the role, as well as a unique perspective having been a State Street client. I know that his perspectives and background will serve us very well as we seek to strengthen client engagement across the organization and create a more seamless experience for our clients."

O'Hanley has three decades of experience leading asset management firms and serving both asset owners and asset managers. Prior to joining State Street in 2015, O'Hanley served as President of Asset Management & Corporate Services for Fidelity Investments. Before Fidelity, O'Hanley spent 13 years in leadership positions at Mellon Bank and Bank of New York Mellon including Vice Chairman of Mellon Financial Corporation and Bank of New York Mellon, and CEO of BNY Mellon Asset Management.

O'Hanley began his career at McKinsey & Company, Inc. where he served as a Partner and Head of its Investment Management practice worldwide. In January 2017, O'Hanley was named Vice Chairman of State Street. In addition to his leadership responsibilities, he oversaw the company's strategy group and serves as executive sponsor for State Street's Black Professional Group.

Cyrus Taraporevala succeeds O'Hanley as President and CEO of State Street Global Advisors. Taraporevala, a 27-year asset management industry veteran, joined SSGA in 2016 from Fidelity Investments. He will report to Hooley and join State Street's Management Committee, its most senior policy-making and strategy group. Mike Rogers, who O'Hanley is succeeding as President and COO of State Street, will retire at the end of 2017. He joined State Street in 2007 following its acquisition of Investors Financial.
