Also hired from Van Kampen were Kathleen A. Zarn and Brian Murphy, both former assistant vice presidents and assistant portfolio managers.
Their new titles have not been determined, but the team initially will focus on managing $200 million in prime rate assets for Keyport Life, a sister company. A Van Kampen staffer said replacements have been selected, but declined to name them.

Mr. Boeschenstein was director of new business and product development at Fidelity. Ms. Goodwin was director of new business and product development for Fidelity Investments Institutional Services.
