Hartford Mutual Funds names Jac McLean as head of distribution
Hartford Mutual Funds has named Jac McLean, 43, as head of distribution. In this newly created position, McLean will be responsible for retail sales, institutional sales and key account management.
“Jac has an extensive background in sales and distribution,” says Jim Davey, executive vice president of Hartford Mutual Funds. “He has developed strong relationships over his 20 years in the industry and he will be a tremendous asset as we continue to grow and develop our mutual funds business.”
McLean began his career at MFS Fund Distributors, Inc and held positions of increasing responsibility during his 16 years at the firm. Most recently, he served as head of US retail and offshore sales at Eaton Vance. McLean holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from Boston College.
This and other recent personnel additions come on the heels of the fund family’s recently expanded relationship with Wellington Management, LLP, which now serves as the primary sub-adviser for more than 50 equity, fixed-income, multi-asset, target-retirement, and alternative funds.
