Echo Point Taps Morgan Stanley Vet For Consultant Relations

Jul 7 2011 | 10:24am ET

Philadelphia-based Echo Point Investment Management has appointed Howard Hassen as a consultant relations specialist.

Hassen joins the international growth equity investment boutique from Morgan Stanley's investment management consultant relations group. Prior to this, he was Salomon Smith Barney's director of fixed income sales and trading, working directly with major institutional investment managers and pensions.

Hassen brings 26 years’ experience in the financial industry to his new post, which will see him managing Echo Point's relationships with West Coast consultants and plan sponsors. He will report to Natalie Marvi-Romeo, Echo Point's director of marketing and client service, and will be based in San Francisco. Marvi-Romeo will continue to cover Midwest, East Coast and Canadian consultants for Echo Point.

The Hassen hire follows those of Bill Perrone (marketing associate) and Anjay Kumar (research analyst) during the past year.

“After years of working together at Morgan Stanley, there is a deep level of mutual respect between the Echo Point team and Howard," said Hans van den Berg, CEO of Echo Point Investment Management.

"Howard has a keen understanding of our investment process and how we manage our international growth equity strategy. He will be a major contributor to reaching our business and growth objectives. We are extraordinarily pleased to work with Howard again and to have someone of his caliber join our team."

Echo Point is an Old Mutal Asset Management affiliate.
