BALTIMORE (July 21, 2009) – After a successful 18-year career with T. Rowe Price, where he is currently the head of Third Party Distribution (TPD), John Cammack, CFP®, has announced his decision to retire on September 30, 2009 in order to devote more time to his non-profit and other personal interests.
In addition to serving as chairman-elect of the United Way of Central Maryland, Mr. Cammack plans to focus on other social initiatives incorporating his interests in systems theory, behavioral economics and neuroscience.
“John was a driving force behind creating our Third Party Distribution division, and building it into a critically important business for the firm, serving a wide array of financial intermediaries,” said T. Rowe Price Vice Chairman Edward Bernard. “A recognized industry leader, he leaves behind a strong and healthy TPD organization, with a superb record of effective sales and client service, marked by very high client satisfaction ratings.”

On an interim basis, Todd Ruppert, president of the firm's Global Investment Services division, will provide leadership for TPD, working with the experienced TPD leadership team and Mr. Bernard.
