GAM has appointed Adam Brown as global head of marketing, effective from 3 July 2017.
Brown (pictured) will be based in London.
Brown joins GAM from Columbia Threadneedle Investments where he was responsible for leading marketing across all distribution channels in EMEA and Asia. He has more than 18 years’ experience in the sector.
Brown will report to Tim Rainsford, group head of distribution, and will be responsible for both sales marketing and product marketing. Brown will work closely with sales, product and distribution teams to drive marketing initiatives, support the group’s sales efforts globally, and increase brand awareness for the group’s single master brand – GAM, following the termination of the company’s licence to use Julius Baer trademarks to market investment funds.
Rainsford says: “Adam is a very experienced professional, bringing a wealth of experience across direct, intermediary and institutional distribution channels in brand-building, client communications, investment insight, thought leadership, events and sponsorships. We are pleased to welcome him to the team, and his experience will further make the way we communicate with our clients more relevant, engaging and timely.”
