Based in Madrid, Javier reports to Dik van Lomwel, Head of EMEA and LatAm at Neuberger Berman.

Dik van Lomwel comments, “As we deepen and strengthen our client base in these key markets it is important to have experienced professionals with local expertise. Javier has been representing us for two years in an external capacity and we look forward to bringing him in-house.”
