Neuberger Berman Group has expanded its global consultant relations team with the appointment of four senior professionals.
The new recruits are:
Rhoni Wiswall, managing director, US West Coast coverage. Wiswall previously served as head of consultant relations at Crestline Investors.
Dimitri Stathopoulos, managing director, US Midwest coverage. Stathopoulos previously served as global head of consultant relations at Nuveen Investments.
Peter Andjelkovich, vice president, US 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, " says 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 US 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.
