Hennessy Makes New Hire With an Eye Toward Growth

by: Erin Kello

Hennessy Advisors has snagged an industry heavyweight to be the president of the Hennessy Funds. Kevin Rowell has joined the company from Pioneer funds where he was president of the Pioneer Funds Distributor.

Rowell left Pioneer in May of 2007 and was replaced by Joseph D. Kringdon, formerly managing director of Putnam Investments. Kringdon's appointment as EVP in charge of U.S. sales was announced Monday.

At Hennessy, Rowell will be in charge of building new sales relationships and distribution channels for the firm's mutual funds.

"We believe Kevin's expertise in building distribution channels and managing key relationships will help us to significantly grow distribution of our funds and our assets under management," Neil Hennessy, president and CEO of Hennessy Advisors said in a release.

"We never had someone solely in charge of distribution before, it was the missing piece of the puzzle," Hennessy told the MFWire.

As for whether there are plans to hire more people for the distribution team, Hennessy says that is entirely up to Rowell.
