In this role, Bell will be responsible for developing and maintaining strategic relationships with large distribution partners, driving sales and revenue growth, and managing AMD's strategic sales plan in Asia. He will be based out of SEI's Hong Kong offices and report to Kevin Barr, Head of SEI's Investment Management Unit.
 
"Brent's expertise in asset management and previous work building out businesses in Asia makes him the ideal individual to grow our presence in the region," says Barr. "As SEI continues to expand its presence internationally, and specifically in Asia, we understand local knowledge, relationships and experience are critical. We're confident that under Brent's leadership we will deliver even better solutions and results for our clients in Asia."
 
Bell has more than 20 years of management experience in the financial services industry, most recently serving as a consultant supporting clients' distribution strategies in Asia from 2013 to 2015.
