The Asset 14 Jun 2024

Nuveen, the investment manager of the US Teachers Insurance Annuity Association (TIAA) with US$1.2 trillion in assets under management, has appointed William Huffman as chief executive officer.

Huffman will chair the company’s executive leadership team and serve as a member of the executive committee. He succeeds Jose Minaya.

With more than 30 years of experience in asset management, Huffman most recently served as president of Nuveen Asset Management and head of equities and fixed income.

Huffman has been at the forefront of Nuveen’s evolution since he joined in 2008 and played a significant role in growing the firm’s assets under management to US$1.2 trillion from US$800 billion in 2014 when TIAA acquired Nuveen.

The expansion of Huffman’s role has included leading on multiple significant acquisitions while overseeing the investment teams responsible for managing assets across public and private markets.

Prior to joining Nuveen, Huffman was CEO of Northern Trust Global Investments. He resides in the Chicago area, and serves his community as vice chairman of the board of directors for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Chicago. He is also a Rush System trustee member and a member of the Cancer Advisory Council.
