Highland Names a Marketing Director

Reported by Tommy Fernandez

Highland Capital Management [profile] has expanded yet again its retail sales team by naming a director of marketing: Ondina Purcell, formerly executive director for advisory and solutions marketing at UBS Financial.

She will be responsible for supporting the sales and distribution efforts and managing all aspects of marketing for the Highland mutual fund arm. Purcell is based at the firm’s New York office and will report to Brad Ross, Highland's president of Highland Capital Management Fund Advisors, in this newly created role.

Highland had already grown its sales force by 13 in July, announcing plans then to hire a marketing director.
