Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Artisan Partners announced today that it has named Jason L. White, CFA, associate portfolio manager on the firm’s growth team, which manages the growth opportunities, mid-cap growth and small-cap growth strategies. He joins the existing growth portfolio management team of Andrew C. Stephens, James D. Hamel, CFA, Matthew H. Kamm, CFA and Craigh A. Cepukenas, CFA.

Mr. White started on the growth team as an analyst in 2000. Prior to joining Artisan Partners, Mr. White was a Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy, serving aboard the USS LAKE ERIE as the ship’s Fire Control Officer. He holds a BS in History from the United States Naval Academy, where he graduated with distinction.

Mr. Stephens said, ‘‘This is a natural evolution of responsibility on our team and the type of career progression we like to see for our analysts. Since Jason joined us, straight from the U.S. Navy nearly eleven years ago, his responsibilities have grown from fundamental analysis to research leadership over key global food chains such as technology. The decision to promote Jason to associate portfolio manager on our team reflects our confidence in his ability to broaden his influence on the strategies we manage.’’
