INTECH Investment Management, an independently managed subsidiary of Janus Capital Group, has hired Phillip Leonardi to head of the firm's consultant relations team. He will work from the firm's global headquarters in West Palm Beach, Fla., reporting to John Brown, senior vice president, head of global client development.

Prior to joining INTECH, Leonardi was head of institutional sales, consultant relations and client service at Hartford Investment Management.

"The demand from institutional investors for risk-managed investment strategies that generate alpha continues to grow and consultants are playing a more significant role in the investment decisions process,” said Brown.

“Phil's long history of working with consultants, and his network of relationships will help to ensure that our products are reaching the appropriate investor base and that we continue to provide the highest level of service to consultants."

As of March 31, INTECH had approximately $41.7 billion under management.
