HOUSTON, March 30, 2016. Today, Bridgeway Capital Management (Bridgeway), an independent, statistically driven investment manager, has named Tammira Philippe as President.
Philippe has worked for Bridgeway since 2005, serving in operations and strategic planning roles. Most recently, she was head of the Marketing and Client Service team. Before joining Bridgeway, she was a consultant for McKinsey & Company and worked in marketing and business development for ICO, a global satellite communications startup.
She received an MBA from Stanford’s Graduate School of Business, and graduated summa cum laude with a BS in Computer Science from Texas A&M University. She holds the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation.
As President, Philippe will guide Bridgeway’s strategic direction and oversee all operations. She will provide financial and compliance oversight and continue to support client service and development efforts.
“During my 11 years with Bridgeway, I’ve seen the advantages of our unique company culture and commitment to statistically driven, evidence-based investing,” said Philippe. “We’re building a new model for the investment management industry—one that benefits our clients, our Partners, and our communities. I’m excited to lead Bridgeway and work with our strong team to build an enduring firm that strives for better investment outcomes for our clients and brings positive change to the world.”
Philippe’s experience and qualifications made her the ideal person to build on the success Bridgeway has experienced since the firm’s founding in 1993.
“Tammira embodies our culture and values, has strong relationships with our clients, and has been involved in key strategic planning and management decisions for more than a decade. She also has a strong vision for what Bridgeway can achieve in the future, and the energy to make that vision a reality,” said John Montgomery, Bridgeway’s Founder, Chairman, and Chief Investment Officer.
Bridgeway’s investment strategy and process will remain the same. John Montgomery will remain Bridgeway’s Chairman and Chief Investment Officer, and Bridgeway’s portfolios will continue to be managed with a team approach.
