Pyxis Capital, a registered investment adviser serving financial advisers, institutions and individual investors, has appointed Stephen Dedyo as managing director, head of national accounts for the Pyxis distribution team.
He will report to Brad Ross, president of Pyxis Capital.
Dedyo (pictured), 35, joins Pyxis from Janus Capital Group, where he was director, advisor relationship management, covering many major national broker-dealers.
Prior to Janus, he spent nearly a decade at AllianceBernstein in a variety of roles of increasing importance and responsibility, including time as a financial adviser associate, regional wholesaler, and a director for global business development.
"We are thrilled to have Stephen join Pyxis," says Ross. "His extensive industry relationships in the broker-dealer community throughout the country will be crucial in building out Pyxis' distribution as a leading provider of liquid alternative products."
As head of national accounts, Dedyo will build and strengthen Pyxis' relationships with broker-dealer platforms.
"Pyxis has proven itself as a leader in the alternative mutual fund space, and demand for its products only continues to grow," says Dedyo. "Joining Pyxis is a tremendous professional opportunity. Together with our new sales team and leadership, I am excited at the prospect of building Pyxis as the pre-eminent liquid alternatives platform and solution for the advisory community and investors."
