John Brown ’85 recently joined INTECH as senior vice president and global head of client development, a newly-created role designed to focus on continued client-service excellence. Previously, he was managing director of the sales, marketing and product development team at Hartford Investment Management Company. INTECH is located in West Palm Beach, Fla. with its research office in Princeton, N.J., and international division in London, England. As of June 2012, INTECH had approximately $39.4 billion under management and 80 employees worldwide.
Prior to working at Hartford Investment Management Company, Brown was affiliated with Fortis Investments in Boston, where he was an executive vice president and head of customer service and business development for North America. He began his career at Aetna Capital Management in San Francisco, Calif. and Seattle, Wash. and spent 11 years with Fidelity Investments in both San Francisco and Boston. At Wesleyan, he majored in environmental sciences.
In a MarketWatch report for The Wall Street Journal, Brown said, “I look forward to working with a firm that is so highly regarded by institutional investors and that focuses on investment products that generate alpha [performance exceeding the expected return] within a risk-managed framework. I believe INTECH’s risk-managed pursuit of alpha will become even more important to clients and consultants particularly if markets remain volatile.”
