ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Eagle Asset Management, an affiliate of Carillon Tower Advisers and a global provider of equity and fixed-income products, is pleased to announce that Brad Erwin, CFA, has been named portfolio manager on the team overseeing several important active equity strategies.

The promotion, part of Eagle’s continued commitment to research-based investment management, means that Mr. Erwin now serves as portfolio co-manager on the team managing Eagle’s Equity Income, Value, All Cap Equity and Strategic Income Portfolio SMAs as well as the Carillon Eagle Growth & Income Fund. He continues in his role as portfolio co-manager on the Eagle Vertical Income Portfolio, and covers the industrials and materials sectors across strategies.

“Brad’s experience, qualifications, and commitment to alpha-generating research for more than a decade make him a natural choice for this role,” said Cooper Abbott, Chairman and President of Carillon Tower Advisers. “Clients of Eagle’s active growth and income strategies have benefited from consistent investment philosophies over the years, and I am confident that Brad’s insights will continue to help investors achieve their objectives.”

Mr. Erwin has 24 years of investment experience as a portfolio manager and analyst. He’s been a member of this Eagle team since 2015, most recently as senior research analyst, and also previously worked at Eagle Asset Management from 2000 to 2007. He earned a Bachelor of Science in finance from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio and is a CFA charterholder.
