Pyxis Capital has hired Keith Watts as Head of National Sales.

Watts joins Pyxis from Destra Capital Investments, where he was the National Sales Manager for RIA and Institutional distribution throughout the US. Prior to Destra, he served in sales leadership and business development roles at Goldman Sachs Asset Management and Janus Capital Group.

"Pyxis is in a great position to take a leadership role in the alternative space, and I am excited to be part of that growth,” stated Watts.

The firm has been on a hiring spree lately, adding a national accounts chief, a wholesaler and a president in June.

According to the firm, an increased appetite for alternative strategies among financial advisers is driving the firm’s sales force expansion which is expected to grow to over 20 sales professionals by year end.
