BOSTON, June 26, 2007 -- As part of its continuing effort to grow its business and provide clients with the highest levels of service quality, Fidelity Investments today announced it has significantly expanded the sales and relationship management teams for its Registered Investment Advisor Group with the appointment of 10 professionals, including Jylanne Dunne as senior vice president of Sales.
In addition to Dunne, Fidelity hired nine new professionals to its relationship management team, including Angelo Aloisio, Hazel Durand, David Herlihy, Relura Horton, Scott Lawton, Ruth Mulligan, James Olmore, Allen Rea and Patrick Richardson. Fidelity's relationship managers work consultatively with clients to develop strategic business plans that can help them drive growth.
With the appointments, Fidelity now has dedicated teams of nearly 125 sales and relationship management professionals who focus on expanding the company's client base of 3,700 RIA, bank trust and third-party administrator firm clients as well as helping existing clients more effectively grow their businesses. The combined sales and relationship management team has grown by approximately 25 percent since 2005.
"Fidelity has a longstanding commitment of aligning our people and resources together to provide advisors with the highest levels of service quality, while also anticipating their strategic needs," Jim Dario, executive vice president of Relationship Management, Fidelity Registered Investment Advisor Group. "Jylanne is a significant addition to our sales team, and we are looking forward to her helping us continue to build upon the tremendous sales momentum we have achieved over the past few years." Fidelity's Registered Investment Advisor Group attracted more than $40 billion in net new assets in 2006 and another $20 billion in the first quarter of 2007, a 144 percent year-over-year increase.
In this new position, Dunne will help to further Fidelity's sales efforts among RIAs who specialize in investment management by demonstrating the value of establishing a strategic relationship with the company. Prior to joining Fidelity, Dunne was executive vice president for Global Business Development of Fund Services for BYSIS Corporation.
