Nov. 5, 2003 — Stock picker Bruce Bartlett, who managed two Oppenheimer mutual funds with about $2.5 billion in assets, has left the company.
An Oppenheimer spokesman had no information about Bartlett’s future plans. The fund complex said Bartlett was succeeded on the $1.6 billion Oppenheimer Growth/A (OPPSX) by Alan Gilston, and on the $847 million Oppenheimer Mid Cap/A (OMDAX) by John O’Hare. Bartlett had overseen both funds for about five years.
Gilston and O’Hare are members of Oppenheimer’s growth equity investment team, which focuses on large-cap stocks.
