Vinik Asset Management has hired a top mutual fund manager from Nuveen Investments.
David Iben will join Boston-based Vinik in June, Nuveen said. At Nuveen, Iben headed its Tradewinds affiliate, managing a pair of stock funds with more than $5 billion in assets under management.

Like Iben, Vinik founder Jeffrey Vinik got his start in mutual funds, leading Fidelity Investments' largest fund for four years before starting the hedge fund in 1996.
