Madison’s Frederick Weiss will serve as managing director of Clearbook Global and as a member of the firm’s executive committee, responsible for working with clients as well as leading the firm’s efforts in providing fiduciary investment solutions.
Daniel Lehrer, formerly vice president of Madison, will serve as director of Clearbrook Global, responsible for the oversight of the client portfolio research and analytics.
