Legg Mason Inc. named Mark Fetting chief executive to succeed Raymond Mason, who over 46 years built a regional stock brokerage into the No. 2 publicly traded money manager in the U.S., with $1 trillion in assets under management. Fetting, 53, was previously responsible for mutual funds at the Baltimore-based company. Mason, 71, had been looking for a successor since April when James Hirschmann, then chief operating officer, backed out of a plan to take over. The company's stock fell 23% last year as earnings were hurt by equity-fund outflows and subpar returns from managers including star stock picker Bill Miller.
