DeAWM expands passive ETP distribution team for US Western region


Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management (DeAWM) has hired four regional vice presidents to support the growth and coverage of its US exchange-traded products (ETP) platform in the Western region.

The team reports to Mick McLaughlin, head of passive distribution in the Americas.

“We are excited about the trajectory of our passive asset management sales team,” says McLaughlin. “The deep relationships and extensive experience of each salesperson will be critical in extending our coverage and services across the region.”

Sean Edkins covers Southern California. Before joining DeAWM, Edkins was a regional vice president for ProFunds, covering Southern California and the greater Southwest region.

Lance Allen covers the Pacific Northwest region. Previously, Allen was a regional vice president at First Trust Portfolios, where he spent nine years covering ETFs.

Jeff Brainard covers the Southwest territory. Prior to DeAWM, Brainard spent over 15 years at ALPS Distributors, where he was most recently a vice president.

Jack Fowler covers the San Francisco metro area. Fowler joins from BlackRock, where he was most recently a vice president in the business development group for iShares.

The expansion of the passive distribution team is part of DeAWM’s latest push to further expand its product offerings, increase outreach to investors, and continue to build its market share in the Americas.
