GAM, the independent, pure-play asset manager, has appointed Adam Brown as Global Head of Marketing, effective from 3 July 2017
Brown, who will be based in London, joins GAM from Columbia Threadneedle Investments where he was responsible for leading marketing across all distribution channels in EMEA and Asia. Previously he worked in a number of marketing roles at Threadneedle, Blackrock and Fidelity.
Brown will be responsible for both sales marketing and product marketing. He will work closely with sales, product and distribution teams to drive marketing initiatives, support the Group’s sales efforts globally and increase brand awareness for the Group’s single master brand, GAM. This follows the termination of the company’s licence to use Julius Baer trademarks to market investment funds. He will report to Tim Rainsford, Group Head of Distribution.
Rainsford said: “Adam is a very experienced professional, bringing a wealth of experience across direct, intermediary and institutional distribution channels in brand-building, client communications, investment insight, thought leadership, events and sponsorships. We are pleased to welcome him to the team, and his experience will further make the way we communicate with our clients more relevant, engaging and timely.”
