Dallas, Tex.-based investment advisor Pyxis Capital has hired Keith Watts as head of national sales.
Watts, a former U.S. Marine, joins Pyxis from Destra Capital Investments, where he was the national sales manager for RIA and institutional distribution throughout the U.S. Prior to Destra, he held a variety of positions including sales leadership and business development roles at Goldman Sachs Asset Management and Janus Capital Group. Watts also helped develop and distribute one of the first 1940 Act registered funds of hedge funds and has been instrumental in helping to establish the role of liquid alternatives in intermediary distribution.
“We are delighted to have Keith join Pyxis,” said Brad Ross, president of Pyxis Capital. “He brings a wealth of industry knowledge and skill to our team, and a record of successfully building great sales teams at leading asset management firms.”
In his new role, Watts will lead a sales and client service team that is expected to grow to over 20 by year end.
Pyxis Capital, with approximately $2.4 billion in retail assets under management, offers 21 funds running the gamut of investment strategies from broad-based equity and fixed-income to alternatives.
