WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Feb. 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Affiliated Managers Group, Inc. (NYSE: AMG) today announced the appointment of Jay C. Horgen as President, effective immediately. Mr. Horgen will also continue to serve as Chief Financial Officer. Nathaniel Dalton, previously President and Chief Executive Officer, will continue as Chief Executive Officer of AMG.
In his expanded role, Mr. Horgen will work closely with Hugh P. B. Cutler, Executive Vice President, Head of Global Distribution, to execute AMG’s growth strategy across its distribution platforms, and will continue to oversee AMG’s finance and capital management functions. Mr. Horgen joined the Company in 2007 as Executive Vice President focusing on investments in new AMG Affiliates, and was named Chief Financial Officer in 2011. He will continue to report to Mr. Dalton.
“Since Jay joined 12 years ago, AMG has grown tremendously, including the trebling of our AUM, Economic net income, and EBITDA; the global expansion of AMG’s operational footprint and client base; and the significant diversification of our Affiliate group, as today we offer the world’s largest array of distinctive return streams managed by independent boutiques,” stated Mr. Dalton. “As an integral part of our executive team, Jay has played an instrumental role in driving AMG’s growth over the years, and the breadth of his contributions, particularly as a partner to Sean and me through the Company’s CEO transition over the past year, has helped to ensure that AMG continues to be the partner of choice for leading independent investment firms globally. I am grateful for all of Jay’s contributions over the years and all of those to come.”
“Jay’s promotion to President is a natural evolution of his responsibility set,” said Sean M. Healey, Executive Chairman. “As CFO, he has done an outstanding job building and evolving our finance function, and enhancing AMG’s financial position – and in his previous role leading our New Investments strategy, also managed the execution of numerous Affiliate investments. I’ve worked with Jay for over 25 years, and his broad industry expertise, deep experience within and across AMG, and strategic and financial acumen will continue to be invaluable to the Company in the years ahead. Nate and I will look to Jay to provide broader leadership as we continue to work together to create long-term shareholder value through the execution of our strategic vision and growth strategy.”
Before joining AMG, Mr. Horgen founded a private equity firm, Eastside Partners, where he served as a managing director. From 1993 to 2005, Mr. Horgen focused on asset management as an investment banker in the Financial Institutions Groups of Merrill Lynch & Co., where he was a managing director, and Goldman, Sachs & Co. Mr. Horgen received a B.A. in Economics and Mathematics from Yale University.
