Beery, Charles to Lead Distribution at Janus

Janus Capital is streamlining distribution under the leadership of Robin Beery and Dan Charles. They are replacing Dominic Martellaro, executive vice president and managing director of Janus Global Advisors, who will step down from his position on Oct. 31 but remain as a consultant through February.

Beery, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, will assume responsibility for Janus' U.S. intermediary business. Charles, executive vice president and managing director of Janus' U.S. institutional business, will oversee sales abroad.

Janus interim CEO Tim Armour noted that Martellaro has made significant contributions in establishing a presence for Janus in the adviser marketplace.

"Dominic's leadership has been invaluable in helping the firm build a robust and successful advisory distribution business and expanding our non-U.S. efforts. We will miss his unbridled enthusiasm, and we wish him well in the next chapter of his life."
