Mr. Hall is based in PIMCO’s New York office and reports to Emmanuel Roman, PIMCO’s Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Hall replaces Eric Mogelof who is leaving after 17 years with the firm.
Mr. Hall has worked extensively across all functions of the firm, collaborating with product strategy, client facing teams, marketing and portfolio management, to build out PIMCO’s alternative credit and private strategies – a key strategic focus for PIMCO. In his new role, Mr. Hall will lead PIMCO’s talented U.S. GWM team in providing wealth clients with a broad suite of strategies including core fixed income, income strategies, municipals, credit, and enhanced cash and longer-term illiquid strategies.

Mr. Hall joined PIMCO in 2017, prior to which he was a Senior Managing Director at the Blackstone Group, where he led the development of several alternative investment businesses. At PIMCO, Mr. Hall has led the buildout of the firm’s alternative credit and private strategies platform – working closely with multiple divisions of the firm to identify areas of attractive investment opportunity, source key talent, refine processes, and to translate PIMCO’s deep research capabilities and investment process into innovative strategies designed to meet client needs across geographies and investor types.
