Stephen Blyth to lead Harvard Management Company

Stephen Blyth will become the next president and chief executive officer of Harvard Management Company (HMC), Harvard University announced today.

Founded in 1974, HMC manages Harvard University’s endowment and related financial assets, seeking strong investment returns to advance the University’s academic mission.   

Blyth currently serves as managing director and head of public markets at HMC, which he joined in 2006. In that role, he is responsible for investments in public equity, credit, and fixed-income markets, accounting for roughly 40 percent of the endowment and other assets that HMC invests through its hybrid model of internal and external management.

An alumnus of Cambridge University and Harvard, Blyth has also served in recent years as a professor of the practice of statistics in Harvard’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences.   

He will assume the presidency of HMC as of Jan. 1, 2015, succeeding Jane Mendillo, who in June announced her plans to step down at the end of the calendar year.
