CRUX hires former Alliance Trust director

Investment management firm CRUX Asset Management (CRUX AM) has appointed Tom Pearson as regional sales director to be made effective immediately.

Pearson, who will report to distribution director Mark Little, will be responsible for managing key relationships in the UK – excluding London.

With some 30 years’ financial experience, Pearson joins CRUX from Alliance Trust Asset Management, where during his 6-year tenure he held a wide range of positions, including director and head of retail sales. Prior to that, he worked at Jupiter Asset Management for 10 years, holding roles such as sales director or head of financial institutions. Pearson formerly worked as head of retail sales at Baillie Gifford.

Distribution director Mark Little said: “Pearson has worked at some of the most highly respected asset management businesses over the course of his career and his success is testament to his approach to managing client relationships. We at CRUX have ambitious growth plans as well as a commitment to maintaining the client-focused culture we have created. We are confident that he has the requisite qualities to enable us to achieve these objectives.”

Tom Pearson added: “In the three years since launch, CRUX has built a formidable reputation for placing equal emphasis on investment excellence and superior client service. Given the pedigree of the company’s principals, this is perhaps not surprising but impressive nonetheless, particularly in an industry which seems to be becoming increasing automated and impersonal.”
