A Chi-Town Fund Firm Adds a Marketing Chief

Reported by Ana Garcia Conway

A Chi-Town fundster is about to take over marketing for a nearby mutual fund firm.

On June 1, Martin Gawne will join Chicago-based North Square Investments as the new head of marketing, MFWire has learned. In his new role, Gawne will report to Phil Callahan, head of distribution and marketing.

Today, Gawne is moving on from Ariel Investments, also Chicago-based, where he has worked for more than four years. He has serve as vice president of external communications. At Ariel, Gawne reported to Adam Hodge, head of external affairs.

Hodge did not return a call for comment.

Meanwhile, at North Square, the head of marketing spot is a new position at the young firm. The company was founded about two years ago, in July of 2018. Recently, North Square acquired Advisory Research's All Cap Value Fund.

"I'm very excited to be joining North Square at this age of their exciting growth trajectory," said Gawne.

Gawne will shift from an external communications role, through which he supported Ariel with marketing communications and brand initiatives, to a broader leadership position at North Square.

Gawne stated, "I am excited about this unique and rare opportunity to help build and develop North Square Investments' marketing communications capabilities and brand."

Before joining Ariel, Gawne was a partner and manager of communications at Adam Street Partners, LLC for two years. From 2012 to 2013 he was the director of marketing and communications at Aviva Investors Americas LLC, and prior, he spent 12 years as marketing director at William Blair Funds.

Gawne began his professional career as a financial reporter for Knight-Ridder Financial News. He received his B.S. in Communications and Agricultural, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
