The ARK Funds announced today that Darryl Grayson has been named senior VP and national sales manager for the Baltimore-based fund family. Grayson was previously at the Delaware Funds, where he had served as VP and sales director since 1997.

Grayson will be responsible for national and regional distribution through brokerage firms, independent financial advisors, and RIAs, according to ARK Funds. Previously, the firm had no national sales manager as the funds were sold primarily through Allfirst Bank, the parent company of ARK’s investment advisor Allied Investment Advisors, said Michele Dalton, managing director and head of the ARK Funds.
