Michael Del Priore, formerly managing director of client services at J. & W. Seligman, has been reassigned to become marketing manager of public funds. Rodney Smith replaces Mr. Del Priore. Mr. Smith continues to be head of marketing for Seligman Henderson, the firm's foreign money management operation and also will head up U.S. institutional marketing.
A Seligman spokesman said the changes were due to growth in the firm's asset under management.
Bill Newman, chief investment strategist, replaced Michael Arends as portfolio manager of the Phoenix Duff & Phelps Aggressive Growth and the Equity Opportunities Funds. Mr. Newman also directs the small-cap and midcap equity investment teams
