NEW YORK, Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Neuberger Berman Group LLC, one of the world's leading employee-controlled investment managers, is pleased to announce the expansion of the firm's global consultant relations team with the appointment of four new senior professionals.
Recent appointments include:
- Rhoni Wiswall, managing director, U.S. West Coast coverage. Wiswall previously served as head of consultant relations at Crestline Investors.
- Dimitri Stathopoulos, managing director, U.S. Midwest coverage. Stathopoulos previously served as global head of consultant relations at Nuveen Investments.
- Peter Andjelkovich, vice president, U.S. Midwest coverage. Before joining Neuberger Berman, Andjelkovich served as a consultant relations professional at Ariel Investments.
- Jolie Cornelius, senior vice president, UK coverage. Before joining Neuberger Berman Cornelius served as an investor relations professional for Verrazzano Capital and prior to that was with Blackstone.
"Expansion of the firm's global consultant relations team and greater emphasis on regional coverage of key investment consulting firms follows the growth of Neuberger Berman's institutional business in recent years," said Alison Delgado, managing director and head of the firm's consultant relations group.
The new additions will bring the dedicated global consultant relations team to 19 professionals. Coincident with the expansion, current Neuberger Berman consultant relations professionals in the U.S. will be increasing their focus with more targeted geographic coverage in the Northeast and Southeast. The new appointments also follow Delgado's own move to the firm's London office. Beyond these new appointments, there are plans to add a consultant relations professional to the existing team in the firm's Toronto office.
Neuberger Berman currently manages assets for clients advised by more than 75 consulting firms globally. As of June 30, 2014 the firm managed $257 billion in equities, fixed income, private equity and hedge fund mandates worldwide, including over $146 billion for institutional investors.
"Success of our consultant relations effort is driven by our ability to partner with these important firms as they advise institutional plan sponsors on a wide-range of investment matters," Delgado said. "The more proactive we can be, the better positioned we are to add value. This requires a well-resourced and well-organized operation globally and this expansion accomplishes that nicely."
