Nearly a month after former WisdomTree
president and COO Bruce Lavine
stepped down and Jonathan Steinberg
succeeded him as president, the company still has not appointed a new COO.
A WisdomTree spokesman told MFWire
that the COO search is "still ongoing." Levine's plans to step down as president and COO were first announced over four months ago, in a company press release
. Another SEC filing
, from April 26, said that the search for a new COO had already commenced.
Despite leaving his post as president, Lavine still has a three-year contract to serve as the company's vice chairman, according to the employment agreement
filed with the SEC on April 24.
Steinberg is a founder of WisdomTree and has been CEO since 1988. Lavine left his role in order to return to California for family reasons, according to the SEC filing.
