UPPER SADDLE RIVER, N.J., Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Seix Investment Advisors LLC, subsidiary of RidgeWorth Capital Management, Inc., is pleased to announce the hiring of Adam Kneller as a Managing Director of Institutional Sales.
In this capacity, Kneller will focus on sales and marketing activity related to large institutional investors in the eastern half of North America, with a particular emphasis on defined benefit plans, endowments and foundations, and insurance companies. Working in concert with the existing sales and consultant relations team, Kneller's direct sales activities will broaden Seix's distribution reach to include large institutional investors that often do not utilize a third party investment consultant due to the heightened financial sophistication that typically mark these larger entities.
"This position, and the hiring of Adam, will help RidgeWorth Investments continue to evolve and expand," said Ashi S. Parikh, RidgeWorth Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer. "His experience with endowments, foundations and insurance companies make him a valuable addition to the RidgeWorth team."
Kneller spent the last eight years at BlackRock, most recently serving as a vice president in their Financial Institutions Group. There, he was responsible for business development among large institutional investors with a focus on executing marketing strategy, developing relationships and designing and implementing investment outsourcing solutions.
"The role Adam is filling is a new one for Seix, and one we are very excited about. We believe the focus of the position will help us better serve our clients, and will help our business strengthen and grow," said Patrick Mc Nelis, Managing Director and Head of Sales, Marketing & Client Service of Seix. "Given Adam's strong relationships, he will be a great asset to Seix and RidgeWorth as we move into the future."
Kneller earned BS degrees in Finance and International Business at New York University's Stern School of Business, where he graduated cum laude.
