Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 30, 2007
Collective IQ (CIQ) [http://www.collectiveiq.com founded by William "Billy G" Glynn, ranked one of the world's top innovators by Information Week, announced today the addition of John Lowman to its team of Strategic Advisors.
Mr. Lowman is an experienced and prominent institutional marketer, whose early professional career included successful domestic and international commercial banking positions with Chase Manhattan and Security Pacific National (Los Angeles, CA) Banks. This was followed by private equity and entrepreneurial ventures. His leadership as Managing Director of TCW provided significant impetus to that organization in public market products. Mr. Lowman recently joined London-based First Avenue Partners as a principal to focus on the alternative asset space, since institutions' asset allocations programs have seen a significant shift in this direction in the last few years. "The ability to recognize potential value, coupled with access, financial resources and the ability to execute are what make Collective IQ unique. The 'always thinking' mantra is particularly important to the institutional investor, where innovation and creativity are critical components of building mutually agreeable business relationships," stated Mr. Lowman.
Jon Nieman, Vice Chairman of Collective IQ in charge of its Alternative Asset Management stated, "Having John Lowman on board as an advisor is another welcome step in our consistent development of strategic relationships in the alternative asset and private equity spheres."
