Commodity trading adviser Drury Capital has hired a former Winton Capital Management sales chief to boost its own presence, especially in Europe.
Bill Miller will serve the Princeton, N.J.-based firm as head of global sales. He'll also launch a London office for Drury, from which he'll work to build the $440 million firm's profile in North America, Europe and Asia.

At Winton, Miller was head of European sales.
