Eaton Vance Distributors has hired three regional directors and three internal wholesalers for its managed account sales and marketing group. Last year, Eaton Vance Corp. began an initiative to dramatically grow its separately managed account business. Last September, it acquired Fox Asset Management and Atlanta Capital Management Co., both of which serve that market.
Courtney John Bercini, Joseph Staszkiw and John Thompson have been named regional directors. Bercini was most recently with Regent Investor Services, where he had served as VP since October 1999. Prior to that, he was a VP at Nicholas Applegate Capital Management. Bercini will be responsible for managed accounts in Kansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
