ALPINE, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Clifford Capital Partners, a boutique institutional value manager, announced today that Roger Hill has joined the firm as a Principal and Managing Director. He will serve on the firm’s Leadership Team.
Clifford Capital offers high conviction, high active share value portfolios for institutional and individual investors. With more than 20 years of industry experience, Hill will focus on helping Clifford Capital gain additional distribution and grow assets under management. “This firm is one of the top firms in the peer group and has a long-term track record of alpha generation,” Hill stated. “It is one of the undiscovered gems of the investment management industry and I look forward to getting the word out.”
Mr. Hill joins Clifford Capital after fifteen years at William Blair where he worked as a head of field sales.
