Commonfund Expands West Coast Team

Institutional investment manager Commonfund grew its San Francisco office through a series of hires and relocations.

Kent Scott, Commonfund Capital managing director, relocated from the company’s headquarters in Wilton, CT. New hires include Jeffrey Stabler, managing director of consultant relations, and two client service directors, Jennifer Seidler and Issa Brant.

Scott’s relocation comes after 11 years with Commonfund. He has an A.B. in economics from Stanford University and an S.M. in management from the MIT Sloan School of Management and holds a chartered financial analyst (CFA) designation.

Stabler, also a CFA, previously worked as vice president of global consultant relations for WHV Investment Management. His earlier jobs include an 11-year term as director and head of consultant relations for RCM, an Allianz Global Investors company.

Seidler transitioned to Commonfund from an independent consulting practice in the San Francisco area. She also worked as a senior financial associate for corporate cash management at the Royal Bank of Canada, San Francisco.

Brandt joined Commonfund after 13 years with RCM and Allianz Global Investors, where he moved through several roles to become client relations and marketing group manager.
