John Brown joined INTECH Investment Management as senior vice president, head of global client development.
The position, leading INTECH's client and consultant relations team, is new.
In a telephone interview, Jennifer Young, INTECH's chairman and CEO, said while parent company Janus Capital Group oversees its affiliates' sales efforts, bringing in an industry veteran like Mr. Brown to lead the firm's efforts will strengthen INTECH's ability to attract and retain assets across a range of distribution segments, including defined contribution, subadvisory, sovereign wealth funds and insurance companies.
Mr. Brown was managing director of sales, marketing and product development at Hartford Investment Management. Julia Zweig, a spokeswoman for HIMCO, said Mr. Brown's responsibilities have been assumed by other executives at the firm.
