Brian Henderson, the executive in charge of marketing and communications at Perpetual will leave the $23-billion asset manager.

Henderson, a Canadian, will return to his homeland, possibly to Toronto, for “family reasons,” according to a Perpetual spokesman. He joined Perpetual in June 2011 and is responsible for developing marketing and advertising.

“He will be still working for Perpetual for a fair number of months,” says the spokesman.

A search for Henderson’s replacement has begun. The Australian Financial Review first reported the news of Henderson’s resignation.
