Francis G. Waltman rejoined Phoenix Investment Partners as senior vice president of product management and development, said spokesman Joe Fazzino.
Mr. Waltman held the same title when he left Phoenix in December, but the position has been broadened amid a planned spinoff of the money management firm later this year from parent The Phoenix Cos., Mr. Fazzino said. Mr. Waltman will focus on extending the relationships of the firm to be renamed Virtus Investments Partners following the spinoff with its affiliated investment managers, as well as establishing new partnerships, Mr. Fazzino said.
Mr. Waltman was a vice president and head of the investment products team at Prudential Retirement. A Prudential spokeswoman said a replacement is being sought.
