Pioneer Sees Departures as Possible Sale Looms

The proposed sale of Pioneer Investments may be on hold for now, but the Boston asset manager is already seeing some defections.

peHUB has learned that Stan Wasilauski, Pioneer’s chief technology officer, and Chris Chapin, vice president of technology, are both leaving. Wausilauski is jumping to another firm in the Boston area (could rhyme with late feet), while Chapin is believed to be joining a high tech startup.

We’re hearing that the timing of Pioneer’s possible sale caused the execs to listen to outside opportunities. An announcement is expected soon.

Officials for Pioneer couldn’t be reached for comment.
