Phillip Bennett was promoted to associate from senior investment analyst by Ennis Knupp + Associates, Chicago. Mr. Bennett heads hedge fund research and is a consultant to several institutional clients.
Ennis Knupp also has stopped searching for a director of manager research, a job held until last year by senior consultant Suzanne Bernard, said Steve Cummings, president. Mr. Cummings said the firm has instead assigned responsibility for manager research by asset class to each consultant on the firm's team. But Ennis Knupp still is searching for a senior consultant to serve public fund clients. Mr. Cummings said the firm is in the process of interviewing candidates.
