Eaton Vance Distributors
Shortly after taking the top job at Eaton Vance Distributors two years ago, Matt Witkos
proceeded to shake up the organization, intregrating leadership
of sales and national account functions for the firm's major distribution channels. He also formed a wealth management solutions group, built
a business intelligence unit, added a chief marketing officer, hired a leader for the defined contribution and sub-advised channels, and created
the Advisor Institute, among other initiatives.
Fast-forward to 2009. During Eaton Vance's fiscal third quarter, which ended in July, the Boston asset manager chalked up its 14th straight quarter of positive
net long-term flows. Eaton Vance saw net inflows of $3.9 billion, representing a
a 12 percent annualized internal growth rate. Gross sales and other inflows
amounted to $10.6 billion, a 10 percent jump from the preceding quarter, while
outflows declined 24 percent to $6.7 billion.
Before joining Eaton Vance in May 2007, Witkos led global distribution at Ixis Asset Management
Advisors Group and earlier was a national sales manager
at Forward Asset Management and co-national sales director at GE Asset Management.
