Thornburg Announces New Hires on Global Distribution Team

Thornburg Investment Management ("Thornburg") today announced three new hires on the firm's global distribution team.

Joseph "Joe" Feloney joined Thornburg as head of strategic relationships; William "Bill" Loehning joined the firm in a newly created position as head of institutional advisor channel; and David Rentfrow joined as head of internal sales. All three roles signal Thornburg's continued focus on strengthening relationships with strategic partners and expanding global distribution capabilities.

Both Mr. Feloney and Mr. Loehning report directly to William Mac "Carter" Sims, head of global distribution. Mr. Rentfrow reports to Rob McInerney, national sales manager.

"Joe, Bill, and David bring decades of industry experience and leadership to Thornburg," said Carter Sims. "Their capabilities will advance our level of client engagement and drive growth in key distribution channels. We are pleased to welcome them to the Thornburg team."

Prior to joining Thornburg in June, Mr. Feloney was a managing director at Jackson National Life Distributors' Private Wealth & Trust Group and oversaw Columbia Threadneedle Investments' DCIO retirement efforts, private banking, registered investment advisor, and insurance-focused teams. In his new role as head of strategic relationships, Mr. Feloney manages a seven-person team in charge of acquiring, retaining, and building assets through key partner firms. The addition of Mr. Feloney allows Leigh Moiol to seamlessly transition her strategic relationship management duties to the global distribution team and focus on Thornburg's strategic marketing initiatives. Earlier this year, Ms. Moiola was promoted to chief marketing officer at Thornburg.

Mr. Loehning joined Thornburg in March from Putnam Investments where he worked with registered investment advisors as a senior regional investment consultant. In his new role as head of institutional advisor channel, Mr. Loehning oversees a new three-person team that will-for the first time at Thornburg-provide dedicated coverage to large RIAs, bank trust platforms, and multi-family offices.

Mr. Rentfrow joined Thornburg in June and was most recently managing director with Crossmark Global Investments. Prior to that, he was a divisional director and managing director at BlackRock, where he led a team responsible for sales and service of all BlackRock products across the U.S. In his new role as head of internal sales, Mr. Rentfrow leads an experienced 17-person internal sales team.
