LOS ANGELES, Jan. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ryan M. Hart has joined DoubleLine as senior consultant relations manager. Mr. Hart joins DoubleLine from PIMCO where he was a senior vice president overseeing the asset management firm's relationships with several of the largest global investment consultants.
Mr. Hart is responsible for developing and implementing DoubleLine's relationships with global, national and regional institutional investment consulting firms and their clients. He reports to Ignacio Sosa, director of the DoubleLine's Product Solutions and Consultant Relations Group.
Prior to managing consultant relationships at Newport Beach, CA-based PIMCO, Mr. Hart was the product manager for that firm's credit-focused strategies. He worked for 14 years at PIMCO. Mr. Hart has appeared on international financial news networks and participated in panel discussions at industry conferences. He also serves on the Investment Committee for the Goodwill Industries of Orange County. He received his Master in Business Administration from the NYU Stern School of Business and his Bachelor of Arts from the University of California at Santa Barbara.
"I am thrilled to work with Ryan Hart again," said Mr. Sosa, who in 2014 joined DoubleLine from PIMCO where he had been executive vice president for Global Bond Product Management. "Ryan is a highly regarded and experienced professional who will help us deepen and expand our relationships with consultants and institutional investors across the globe."
Mr. Hart's first workday at DoubleLine was January 19.
"Over the years, I've watched DoubleLine establish itself as a leader in asset and risk management," Mr. Hart said. "The markets are transitioning from a period of systemic crisis followed by a period of massive policy intervention and anemic bond yields. In meeting with Jeffrey Gundlach and others, I realized that the DoubleLine team has developed refreshingly unique, proven investment processes which can add value for clients going into the environment that lies ahead. I'm excited for the opportunity to help bring these solutions to the consultant community and their clients."
