Chief Executive, TCW Group Inc.

THE LATEST: In January, TCW Group’s New America Premier Equities Fund beat the performance of the benchmark Russell 1000 index over the prior three-year period. That news came after a #MeToo allegation last year that led to changes on TCW’s board.

Its clients include corporate and public pension plans, endowments and foundations, financial advisers and institutions, and wealthy individuals.

His career includes positions at Credit Suisse First Boston in New York, Donaldson Lufkin & Jenrette and Drexel Burnham Lambert.
