BKF promotes Maguire to head client relations


New York City-based BKF Capital Group has promoted Scott Maguire to the role of vice president and director of client and consultant relations for its asset management group.

The promotion follows a restructuring in the wake of last year's boardroom ouster of John A. Levin, who founded BKF's asset management subsidiary.

Maguire was previously BKF's regional sales director. In his new post, Maguire will work with James Millet, who recently saw his duties expanded as the firm's director of institutional client relations. Both men report to Stephen Eckenberger, who heads sales and marketing.
