Friday, September 14th, 2018

Stadion Money Management, known for its participant level, customized retirement solutions, announced the promotion of Will McGough to Chief Investment Officer of Stadion’s retirement investment strategies, a new position, and his simultaneous appointment to the firm’s investment committee. McGough will continue to report to Brad Thompson, Stadion Money Management’s CIO.

McGough’s new role comprises oversight of Stadion’s risk-based, target date, and managed account strategies while maintaining his mutual fund portfolio management duties.

“Strictly speaking, this is a new position for Will, but the reality is that his promotion is a public affirmation of the superb investment and technical roles he’s been playing for some time now,” said Jud Doherty, Stadion’s President & CEO. “Will has demonstrated outstanding capabilities related to the evolution of our StoryLine managed account service, enhancements to our glidepath technology, and his involvement in complex co-creation opportunities. All in all, I couldn’t be happier for Will or more grateful for his unwavering commitment to Stadion.”

McGough joined Stadion as an analyst immediately following his 2003 graduation from the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business, where he earned a Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) degree in Finance. In 2007, he was promoted to Senior Research Analyst, a role he held for a little over three years, before being promoted to Portfolio Manager and then to Senior Vice President. McGough serves as Portfolio Manager for Stadion’s non-retirement strategies, focusing on the integration of risk management into Stadion’s asset allocation processes.

McGough holds the Chartered Financial Analyst designation. He is a member of the CFA Institute, the CFA Society of Atlanta, the American Association of Professional Technical Analysts, National Association of Active Investment Managers, the UGA Alumni Association, and National Eagle Scout Association.
