In an effort to boost nationwide sales, Weiss, Peck & Greer (WPG) has hired four national sales executives, the firm announced last week. WPG manages $20 billion in assets, $881 million of which are in seven proprietary mutual funds and $3 billion of which are in sub-advised funds.

Ken Brooks, who will be based in WPG's San Francisco office, will oversee the firm's sales to public funds nationally except for in the Midwest and Florida. He joins WPG from Zurich Scudder Investments, where he served as senior vice president responsible for acquiring new institutional business in the Western United States and Canada for the past six years.
