GAM Hires Global Head of Marketing

Adam Brown will be joining asset management firm GAM as the company’s new global head of marketing. He will assume his new role on July 3, 2017, at the London office. He will be responsible for driving global marketing initiatives while working closely with the sales, product and distribution teams. He will also be tasked with increasing awareness of the group’s single master brand GAM, after the termination of the company’s license to use Julius Baer trademarks to market investment funds.

Brown has more than 18 years of experience in the industry. He comes to GAM from Columbia Threadneedle Investments, where he was responsible for leading marketing across all distribution channels in EMEA and Asia. He also held various marketing positions with Blackrock and Fidelity. Brown earned his master’s degree in strategic marketing management from Kingston University.

Tim Rainsford, group head of distribution, 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.”
