"Janus has a strong investment culture, a competitive product lineup and a commitment to bringing innovative product solutions to market," said Fanning. "I believe Janus can continue to expand its presence among financial intermediaries and I want to play a part in that growth."

Prior to joining Janus, Dedyo served as director of Global Business Development with AllianceBernstein Investments, Inc. from 2004-2008. Before that, he was a regional wholesaler with AllianceBernstein Investment Research & Management. Dedyo began his career in 1999 as a financial advisor associate with Sanford C.
