GAM appoints Adam Brown as Global Head of Marketing

GAM announced today that Adam Brown will be joining the Group as Global Head of Marketing, effective from 3 July 2017. He will be based in London.

Adam Brown joins GAM from Columbia Threadneedle Investments where he was responsible for leading marketing across all distribution channels in EMEA and Asia. With more than 18 years’ experience in the sector, Adam is highly skilled at driving marketing activities across both traditional and digital communication channels.

Adam will report to Tim Rainsford, Group Head of Distribution, and will be responsible for both sales marketing and product marketing. Adam will work closely with sales, product and distribution teams to drive marketing initiatives, support the Group’s sales efforts globally, and increase brand awareness for the Group’s single master brand – GAM, following the termination of the company’s licence to use Julius Baer trademarks to market investment funds.

Tim Rainsford, Group Head of Distribution, said: “Adam is a very experienced professional, bringing a wealth of experience across direct, intermediary and institutional distribution channels in brand-building, client communications, investment insight, thought leadership, events and sponsorships. We are pleased to welcome him to the team, and his experience will further make the way we communicate with our clients more relevant, engaging and timely.”
