has learned that Marty Beaulieu
left iShares last month after more than three years with the company. His roles had included: co-head of iShares' US ETF business and head of iShares' wealth management business; head of the global client and sales excellence program; and head of the leveraged distribution group.
A spokesman for BlackRock was not immediately able to comment for this story.

and retail and iShares chief Rob Fairbairn informed
the BlackRock team that corporate strategy chief Salim Ramji
would be succeeding Frank Porcelli
as head of U.S. wealth advisory. Porcelli became chairman of U.S. wealth advisory.
Meanwhile, as reported
last week by our sister publication, 401kWire
, Beaulieu is joining the advisory board of BrightScope

An alumnus of Santa Clara University, Beaulieu spent 22 years at MFS before joining BlackRock in July 2012. Prior to MFS, he was a wholesaler for fixed income annuities and alternatives managers (in energy and real estate). Per his LinkedIn profile, he also worked as a drilling fluids engineer on oil wells in Saudi Arabia.
