reports that Leahy's duties will be handled by other members of SSgA's executive team.
Besides Leahy, three other SSgA executives are said to be departing the company: senior managing director Roger Petrin
, who heads up the global trading and implementation groups; senior managing director Klaus Esswein
, who oversees the German and Swiss units; and senior managing director Jean-Francois Schock
who leads the Europe, Middle East and Africa strategic growth group.
The departures come five months after SSgA saw a change at the top. Old Mutual's Scott Powers
took the helm of SSgA in May, taking over from Bill Hunt
(see The MFWire

Prior to joining SSgA, Leahy was with Bankers Trust Investment Management in the derivative products and index management groups.
