In this new role, he will be responsible for managing the firm’s relationship with several of its largest and key consulting firm partners, particularly those on the East Coast, where he is based.
Gordon reports to Mike Foley, Head of US Institutional, who oversees Franklin Templeton’s US institutional direct sales, consultant relations and relationship management teams and serves as an essential liaison to institutional distribution leaders at the firm’s independent specialist investment managers.
“We are pleased to welcome Jamie to our experienced team. His extensive expertise will help us in continuing to raise the bar in terms of delivering the high-quality service our institutional clients and their consultants have come to expect over the more than four decades that Franklin Templeton has served the US institutional marketplace," said Foley.
Gordon has 25 years of experience in financial services. He joins from Income Research + Management, most recently serving as Principal, Senior Client Portfolio Manager, focusing on direct sales, consultant relations and client services. Prior to joining Income Research + Management in 2009, he held positions at JPMorgan Securities and Prudential Securities.
