Saying it is still not even close to being finished in its national sales force expansion, Lord Abbett & Co. hired S. Chris Fiacco to its sales group.
Before agreeing to join Jersey City, N.J.-based Lord Abbett, Fiacco worked as a regional wholesaler for the Mid-Atlantic region for Blackrock Funds. In a two-year period there, Fiacco took a once-fledgling region to No. 2 overall among Blackrock regions, thanks to his marketing of the company's open-ended mutual funds, according to a release from the firm. At Lord Abbett, Fiacco will be diving right back into the same region, working in Baltimore and the surrounding area.
