These senior management promotions serve to enrich and solidify the executive management team supporting Robert J. Blanding as chairman and chief executive officer.  “Since joining Loomis Sayles in 2000, Kevin has handled management responsibilities of an increasingly broad nature and often well beyond the scope of a typical chief financial officer,” said Robert Blanding. “We are happy to add president to Kevin’s title as it is a well-earned recognition that more accurately reflects the leadership role he plays in so many aspects of our company.”  Kevin began his investment industry career in 1988 and joined Loomis Sayles in 2000 from Nvest Companies, L.P., where, as manager of financial operations, he was responsible for all management and public reporting. He joined Nvest Companies as a senior financial analyst in 1993, was appointed assistant treasurer and manager of financial planning in 1995, and promoted to senior vice president and treasurer in 1996. Kevin began his career at the Boston Company, first as a senior financial analyst and later as manager of the financial planning and cost accounting departments. He earned a BA from Trinity College and an MBA from Boston University.
