June 3, 2003 — Strong Financial Corp. has named portfolio manager Ronald Ognar vice chairman.
Ognar will give up managing funds on June 30, and will remain with Strong until January 2006. After that, he will maintain an as-yet-unspecified relationship with the company, a Strong spokeswoman said.
Ognar’s son, Thomas, and Brandon Nelson, Bruce Olson, and Kevin Gaughan, who have all helped the elder Ognar run funds for the Milwaukee-based company, will assume his portfolio management responsibilities. Like Ronald Ognar, all are growth-oriented investors, according to the spokeswoman, Meredith Evans.
Thomas Ognar, a co-manager on the Strong Growth Fund/Inv (SGROX), will take over that offering, and the Advisor Focus fund.
