Commonfund Taps Dolan To Head Consultant Relations

Sep 8 2011 | 7:17am ET

Wilton, Conn.-based investment manager Commonfund has hired Lou Ann Dolan as managing director, group head of consultant relations.

Dolan brings over 35 years of institutional investment experience to her new role. Prior to joining Commonfund, she oversaw traditional and alternative investment mandates for Trust Company of the West. Her experience also includes a stint managing U.S. consultant relations at J.P. Morgan Investment Management. Before that, she spent 15 years as an investment consultant, first with William Mercer and then with Callan Associates.

"This is a strategically important hire for Commonfund," said Douglas McNeely, president of Commonfund Securities. "Now more than ever it's vital that we work closely with the consultant community in providing investment solutions to sophisticated institutional investors. Lou Ann's experience working at both leading investment firms and top consultant organizations will help convey the value of Commonfund's investment strategies to this segment of the market."

Founded in 1971, Commonfund is an institutional investment firm serving nonprofit institutions, pension funds and other leading institutional investors. Directly—or through its subsidiaries Commonfund Capital and Commonfund Asset Management Company—Commonfund manages over $27 billion for over 1,500 clients.
