Christopher P. Keating was named a managing director and head of global sales and distribution at Cutwater Asset Management.
The position is new, confirmed Mr. Keating, in a telephone interview.
He left his previous position as vice president and head of institutional sales with Columbia Management last June. He left after Ameriprise Financial, parent of RiverSource Investments, whose institutional sales efforts Mr. Keating led, acquired Columbia Management. RiverSource’s name was changed to Columbia after the acquisition. Since then, Mr. Keating said he’s been mixing time off with volunteer work, including serving on an advisory board to the Maine Business School.
