Wingate AM names new chief executive

Global equities manager Wingate Asset Management has appointed Jamie Mead as its new chief executive.


Jamie Mead takes up the CEO role, having made the move to Wingate after eight years leading London-based Tyrus Capital as a partner and one of the founding members of the company.

“Jamie’s international experience in the asset management industry, having successfully driven business expansion within financial institutions across the globe, brings additional depth of expertise to Wingate Asset Management’s operations,” Wingate chief investment officer Chad Padowitz said.

Mr Padowitz added that Mr Mead’s appointment comes at an important time for the firm, and his broad experience represents “a welcome addition” to the executive team.

“The appointment comes at a crucial time in the investment market cycle. With the current global environment of falling rates, and investors continuing to seek income without taking on excessive levels of risk, investors are looking for opportunities that will continue to deliver,” Mr Padowitz said.

Prior to Tyrus Capital, Mr Mead worked with US hedge fund Deephaven Capital Management for four years, and he has also held positions at Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley.
