Christina Manonian has joined Legg Mason as its new institutional sales director and would report to business head, Andy Sowerby, effective 30 July this year.
Manonian has over 18 years’ experience across sales and marketing roles and joins the firm from Franklin Templeton Investments Australia, where she was institutional sales director.
Sowerby said Manonian was a key addition as the firm sought to deepen service and support to their institutional clients and their advisers.
“Christina brings strong personal connections across the Australian investor landscape and she will undoubtedly help us to improve as a business,” he said.
Manonian said she was keen to work closely with Legg Mason’s investment affiliates to offer innovative investment solutions suited to local institutional investors.
