Marketer Tim Stidham Joins PFM Western Region as Director

Tim Stidham, a veteran of more than 30 years of sales, marketing, and business development in the asset management industry, has joined PFM’s western region asset management practice as a Director. He will be based in Los Angeles, focusing on expanding PFM’s reach across all asset management products and services with an emphasis on multi-asset class management.

“I spent a lot of time building my network of contacts,” said Stidham, who was awarded Institutional Investors “Marketer of the Year” in 2009 for his work for public pension plans. “I seek to build relationships based on trust and credibility as I focus on fulfilling the investment needs of the plans I worked with. In my new role, I will be introducing our products and services, including outsourced CIO, to endowments, foundations, pension funds, Taft Hartley (labor unions) and similar institutions.”

“We are very fortunate to have someone of Tim’s caliber join the firm as we look to expand our reach in the West,” said PFM Managing Director Lauren Brant.

Before coming to PFM, Stidham held senior positions at several large investment firms including American Century Investments, Putnam Investments and RCM Capital Management among others. In addition to those positions, he has sat on various boards, including the boards of the Institutional Investors Institute and the Texas Public Employee Retirement System. 

“Being involved with the different state and national organizations allowed me to develop tremendous relationships. PFM has earned its reputation in a similar way. I was attracted by the company’s culture and felt PFM was a good fit with my background,” he said.  

Stidham has a bachelor’s degree in Economics from UCLA, where he also played both football and baseball.
