Chris Kilpatrick, a bank loan trader and structured analyst at PIMCO, will soon be leaving the firm to join the fixed income management firm Western Asset Management Company (WAMCO). Kilpatrick will start working at WAMCO in the beginning of August as an analyst on the firm's structuring desk.
At PIMCO, Kilpatrick reported to Jason Rosiak, a v.p. and portfolio manager, and Ray Kennedy, a managing director at the firm. It is unclear how PIMCO will fill the vacancy. Kilpatrick declined to comment on the move and a spokesman at PIMCO did not return calls by press time. A WAMCO spokesperson declined comment.
