Neuberger Berman has appointed Michelle Dunne as managing director of the firm’s consultant coverage leadership team.
Dunne will partner with Jamie Wong to lead the consultant efforts across Europe, Middle East, and Africa. She will also work closely with the firm’s North America counterpart, Lesley Nurse.
At BlackRock, she was head of global consultant relations (EMEA) responsible for the development and execution of alternatives strategies for global, local and specialist consultants across the region.
Dunne has held various roles at BlackRock focused on alternative investment sales for institutional investors. Prior to this, she also spent time at Credit Suisse, Pioneer Global Investments and Goldman Sachs.
Dik van Lomwel, head of EME and Latin America at Neuberger Berman, said: “Investment consultants continue to grow in importance as an increasingly broad set of institutions face complex investment challenges. I am delighted that someone with Michelle’s pedigree and deep understanding of the institutional market is joining our team.”
As at the end of September, Neuberger Berman has $437 billion in client assets.
