AMCS Group has announced the promotion of Álvaro Palenga, CFA, to Sales Director and his relocation from Montevideo to Miami. He will be reporting to Andrés Munho, Co Founder and Managing Partner.

In a press release, the company has pointed out that Palenga is assuming the role "at an exciting time", as the business is seeking to significantly grow the market presence of its three asset management partners, AXA Investment Managers, Jupiter Asset Management and Man Group, in the US Non-Resident channel.

In his new role, he will be focused on covering wirehouses, private banks and broker dealers in Miami and Texas, while providing additional support to the New York area market, which is currently serviced by Chris Stapleton, Co-founder and Managing Partner of AMCS.

“We are extremely excited with the promotion and relocation of Álvaro as our Miami-based Sales Director. He has made significant contributions to our business in a short period of time, and we’re confident his consultative, investment-centric approach will be well received by our North American clients", commented Munho.

Reorganization of the team

The firm has also announced the hire of Santos Ballester Molina as Sales Associate, based in Montevideo. He will support the wider AMCS sales team across the entire Americas region, with a focus on the southern cone client group.

"Having Santos join us in Montevideo at a pivotal time for our business to be able to support the wider team’s efforts represents a key addition to our team, and we’re confident he is up for the task of adding value for our clients across the Americas. We all look forward to both of their contributions to our ambitious growth plans", said Munho.

Ballester will report to Santiago Sacias, Managing Partner and Head of Southern Cone Sales, who is also based in Montevideo. He joins from Riva Darno Asset Management in Buenos Aires where he has worked since completing his bachelor’s in economics from the University of San Andrés.

As part of this reorganization of the AMCS sales team, Francisco Rubio has left the business "to pursue other opportunities", the press release says. He leaves "with tremendous gratitude" from the firm for his significant efforts over the years".
