- — President of Ivy Global Investors and Head of Global Relationship Management, Ivy Distributors, Inc. (IDI)
Nikki joined the company in January 1998 and currently serves as President of Ivy Global Investors and Head of Global Relationship Management for IDI where he is responsible for National Accounts and consultant relationships, as well as institutional sales. In his new role, Nikki will report to me and will lead our wholesale and institutional distribution efforts, sales and product development, as well as manage strategic relationships. It is important now, more than ever, that distribution and asset management move in lockstep given the convergence of retail and institutional in the asset management business. Significant portions of our DCIO, National Accounts, institutional and RIA distribution efforts have begun to coalesce around an institutional standard of product adoption and acceptance, and Nikki has proven to be a successful leader in those efforts throughout his career.
