TABB Group, the financial markets research and strategic advisory firm focused solely on capital markets, has promoted Adam Sussman to director of research from his previous position as senior research analyst. Susssman will report to Larry Tabb, founder and CEO.
With Sussman’s promotion to research director, Robert Iati, a partner, moves to a newly created senior management position as TABB Group’s head of consulting with global responsibility for the firm’s strategic advisory services.
Strengthening the client support team based in New York, the firm also hired Francesca Loo, previously of Strategic Insight Mutual Fund Research & Consulting, as a client services director and Deborah Van Flandern, formerly of RSM McGladrey, as an account management director. Both Loo and Van Flandern will report to Mike Ross, partner and vice president, sales and marketing.
The firm has also announced two new senior analyst and analyst appointments.
Kevin McPartland joins as a senior analyst from Detica (formerly m.a.partners), where he was a senior manager in the global financial markets division responsible for strategic and implementation projects across equities, derivatives and fixed income. Monica Schulz, previously a reporter at Institutional Investor News, joins as an analyst.
Both McPartland and Schulz will report to Sussman.
“An international research and strategic advisory firm is only as good as the people who work for it,” comments Tabb. “Moving aggressively into 2008, we have made TABB Group a stronger organisation to better serve our clients’ research and consulting requirements in the US, Canada, the UK and throughout Europe.”
