Christine Johnson, former head of fixed income at Old Mutual, has joined the board of the £117m Invesco Perpetual Enhanced Income trust, in her first role in the closed-ended sector.
Johnson joins the board as a non-executive director as well as chair of the management engagement committee, effective immediately.
She is also currently a non-executive director of CCLA, the asset management company that focuses on church, charity and local authority clients.
Prior to this, she worked at Old Mutual Global Investors for almost seven years as head of fixed income. She has also held senior roles at HSBC, Investec and RSA.
Johnson joins at the same time as Kate Bolsover, who has been appointed as chair. She is currently a non-executive director of the £177m Montanaro UK Smaller Companies trust and chair of the £315m Fidelity Asian Values trust.
The appointments come following a high-profile spat last April between the managers of the trust, Paul Causer and Paul Read, and the former chair of the board Donald Adamson and chair of the management engagement committee, Richard Williams.
Meanwhile, Clive Spears steps down as chair of the audit committee and Peter Yates resumes this role with immediate effect.
Commenting on her appointment, Bolsover said: "I am delighted to be joining the board of IPE and very much look forward to working with my fellow directors and Invesco's fund managers to ensure the Company continues to deliver a reliable income stream for our shareholders."
