Ron manages separate accounts for the Municipal Fixed Income Team.
He joined the firm in 2013 from Western Asset Management Company’s municipal bond group where he was in a leadership role dedicated primarily to the municipal separately managed account business. Ron began his career in the financial industry in 1977 and spent 30 years at Western and its predecessor companies. More specifically, in 1983, he joined E.F. Hutton’s high net worth municipal retail advisory group. In 1987, this effort was moved within the firm to Hutton Asset Management, which is credited for starting the industry’s first fee-based, discretionary portfolio management business model. Ron was with Hutton Asset Management and subsequent firms since 1987, having gone through numerous acquisitions (Shearson Lehman Hutton, Greenwich Street Advisors, Smith Barney Asset Management, Citi Asset Management and ultimately Legg Mason).
Ron earned a B.A. in sociology and anthropology from Dowling College.
Firm tenure for Nuveen Asset Management investment professionals may include years of service at predecessor advisory operations.
