Ms. Potesta has over 17 years of experience working with asset managers, banks, insurance companies, and regional and national broker dealer firms. She joins Schroders from DWS Investments, where she served as Director, National Account Manager and Head of Third Party Insurance and DCIO. Prior to joining DWS she worked as Director and Head of National Accounts at First Eagle Funds, where she was responsible for strategic business development and management of all client relationships.

"Tiffani is a powerful addition to the team and brings an expertise that will help drive our cross-channel growth," said Ms. Brenner.

Schroders has been in growth mode over the past five years, and continues to build out its distribution efforts in the US with recent hires on the internal and external sales teams. The coverage model for the Intermediary Sales team, led by Dave Jodka, Head of Intermediary Sales, has shifted from four territories in the US to eight. Recent additions to the team include Jim Carpenter, who covers the South Atlantic region and previously worked at Goldman Sachs Asset Management. Jim brings 25 years of experience in the financial services industry, holding positions in asset management distribution and as a Financial Advisor. In addition, Adam Rouse has joined as an internal wholesaler to further support the distribution team. Adam was previously a Senior Investment Consultant for Allianz Global Investors. The group will be expanding further and looking to add several positions, including a Sales Director covering the Northeast.

"The recent additions are a reflection of our commitment to investing in our Intermediary franchise in the US," said Carter Sims, Head of US Intermediary Distribution at Schroders. "This expansion further signifies our success in the US over the last five years. We are committed to thoughtfully growing our US presence with experienced and talented professionals."
