Ivy Distributors, Inc. (IDI) has added breadth and experience to its
sales leadership with the appointment of industry veteran Joseph Moran

at key firms. He begins his new role Sept. 4, 2018, and will be

and performance of IDI's broker-dealer distribution channel. He will
have management responsibility for national channel sales, headed by
National Sales Manager Marlene Alexander, and for key accounts, led by
the Heads of National Accounts Stacy Albin and Anna Barnes.

"Joe's appointment aligns with our recent proactive steps to restructure
and effectively resource our distribution team as we pursue a more
diversified asset flow and AUM profile across all distribution
channels," said Amy Scupham, president of Ivy Distributors, Inc. "Our
focus is squarely on meeting the unique needs of each of our clients as
we work to increase market share, efficiency and ongoing service."
