Mark A. Weiller has been named head of distribution and product management for the Americas at Stone Harbor Investment Partners, the company said.
Mr. Weiller is based in New York. He brings 28 years of experience in asset management, including from his previous role as investment director, emerging markets, for M&G Investments U.S., a news release Monday said.
A Stone Harbor spokesman could not be immediately reached on whether the position is new.
"We've been searching for the right combination of talent, experience and relationships to lead our effort in the Americas," said Peter Wilby, managing partner and co-CIO, in the news release. "Mark brings to Stone Harbor broad experience in asset management business leadership and development, and a highly successful record in emerging markets distribution."
An M&G spokesman did not immediately respond for comment about who would replace Mr. Weiller.
