T. Rowe Price hires Woodford sales manager
T. Rowe Price has appointed Simon King to lead its client relationship management team in the UK.
In this newly-created role, King’s primary responsibility will be to broaden the company’s engagement in the UK intermediary market, servicing services fund selectors and global financial intermediaries.
King joins from Woodford Investment Management, where he spent two years as client relationship manager. Prior to that, he spent more than a decade in the sales team at Thames River Capital/F&C. He is set to join T. Rowe Price later this summer.
“Attracting someone of Simon’s calibre to join us at T. Rowe Price clearly demonstrates our long-term commitment to the UK intermediary market,” T. Rowe Price head of UK Business John Yule commented. “Simon is highly-respected and has a wealth of experience in this space, having held successful roles at Woodford and Thames River Capital/F&C. He will undoubtedly be a great addition to our team.”
