Miller, Ex-Winton, Joins Drury, To Launch London Office

May 8 2012 | 9:55am ET

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.

“I believe our strong diversification within the futures markets and specific emphasis on commodities, as well as our longer style of trading, will provide performance that will set us apart from the rest of the world and deliver tangible results for our investors," Miller said.

At Winton, Miller was head of European sales.
