Habert exits WL Ross after a year

  • Wilbur Ross named U.S. commerce secretary in 2017
  • Habert joined Invesco in April 2017
  • Habert still listed on Invesco site as a senior director, client portfolio manager


Harriet Habert, a senior investor relations director, has left WL Ross & Co after a little more than a year.

A person answering phones at WL Ross said Habert no longer works at the firm. Habert exited in April and is on gardening leave, two sources said. She is still listed on the Invesco site as a senior director, client portfolio manager. She joined Invesco, the parent of WL Ross, in April 2017, Habert’s LinkedIn profile said.

Prior to WL Ross, Habert spent three years as a managing director, director of marketing at Hollis Park Partners, LinkedIn said. She also worked at UBS Securities and KGS Alpha Capital Markets.

Habert, when reached by phone last week, declined comment and referred questions to Invesco.

“Invesco does not comment on personnel matters,” spokeswoman Jeanine Terrio said in an emailed response to questions.

Wilbur Ross, who founded the PE firm that bears his name, is U.S. commerce secretary. Greg Stoeckle and Stephen Toy were named co-heads of WL Ross in May 2014.
