Russell Expands Client Team with DC Specialist

Russell Investments hired Matthew Teevan as a defined contribution (DC) specialist for the firm’s U.S. adviser-sold business.

The firm’s defined contribution investment-only (DCIO) team partners with financial intermediaries to support the delivery of retirement plan insights and solutions to advisers and DC platforms in the northeast region of the U.S.  Teevan joined Russell on June 1 and reports to Ben Jones, director of defined contribution, intermediary distribution, who oversees Russell’s DCIO intermediary distribution across the country.  

Teevan joins the team with nearly 15 years of industry experience, most recently as a retirement and planning principal at Family Office Group, where he helped to build the firm’s registered investment adviser (RIA) business. He previously served in a variety of roles over 10 years at Merrill Lynch Retirement Group. 

Matthew’s notable expertise in the retirement space and experience in educating advisers equips him with insights that will allow us to serve our clients more effectively and strengthen relationships with platform partners,” said Kristin Gibson, director of national strategic partnerships.
