Peter R. Wilamoski was named senior research associate at consultant Wurts & Associates, effective Aug. 1.
It is a new position. The hire is part of the company’s expansion of its consulting and research divisions, according to a news release. The company also is searching for a senior consultant for its Los Angeles office.
Mr. Wilamoski most recently served as director of research for investment management consultant Threshold Group where he oversaw manager selection, was responsible for investment research, and advised foundations with more than $500 million in assets.
Wurts President and CEO Jeffrey MacLean said in a telephone interview that the company anticipates additional hires as it continues to add to its discretionary consulting practice. “We believe the future of delivering investment advice to institutional investors is going to be through discretionary platforms,” he said.
Threshold spokesman Chris Phillips could not be reached for comment.
