Ted Parkhill, a former marketer for John W. Henry & Co., has become the latest departure from the fast-shrinking firm. Parkhill has found a new home within Dekker Capital Management, an Incline Village, Nev.-based managed futures shop.
“He left with a group pf people around the same time that Mark Rzepczynski left,” founder Jason Dekker said, referring to the former JWH president and chief investment officer. “John [Henry] let about five people go at about the same time and Ted was one of those. I met him initially at the MFA conference in Miami, and he came to our office for a few days; once by himself and a few weeks later he came back with his wife. He really liked out programs and performance and thought it was a perfect fit for him.”
Parkhill will work with Dekker’s current marketer Eric Brown to boost the firm’s marketing and sales efforts. The nearly three-year-old firm is currently managing $200 million in its three futures programs.
The Global Diversified programs use long-term trend following systems to trade a range of futures markets globally. Since inception in September 2004, Global Diversified 1x and 3x returned 27.12% and 80.67% to investors on a compounded basis, according to the firm.
Dekker said the firm is looking to launch offshore products within the next few months but declined to comment further on the products’ details.
