Guggenheim Partners announced today that Dorothy Mattison has joined the firm as a senior managing director.

In her new role, Mattison reports to Todd Boehly, managing partner in the office of the CEO. She is focusing on building and strengthening companies in which Guggenheim has invested.

“Dottie will play an integral role in our efforts to maximize the value of our current portfolio company investments and to identify additional prospective companies with which we may establish partnerships,” said Todd Boehly. “Her breadth of experience in brand management, ability to leverage intellectual property across consumer platforms and deep operating experience in retail makes her a valuable addition to our team. It is with great pleasure that I welcome Dottie to Guggenheim.”

A retail and apparel industry veteran, Mattison was most recently the senior vice president of the apparel global merchandising center of Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. She was responsible for all product strategy, design, development, sourcing, production and brand management for Wal-Mart’s portfolio of private apparel brands. She also led the relocation and build-out of Wal-Mart’s apparel operation when the business moved to New York City in 2007. Prior to this role, Mattison was vice president and chief merchant of Walmart.com.

In 2007, The Wall Street Journal named Mattison one of “50 Women to Watch.” She has been a participant in Fortune magazine’s Most Powerful Women in Business Summit, and a member of the National Association of Female Executives Closed Roundtable. Mattison serves on the board of directors for Dress for Success Worldwide.

Guggenheim Partners is a diversified financial services firm with more than $100 billion in assets under supervision. The firm’s businesses include investment management, investment advisory, insurance, investment banking and capital markets services.
