About the Manager

Philip Tasho, CEO and CIO of Alexandria, Virginia-based TAMRO Capital Partners, always had an affinity for languages. That’s why he chose to major in Russian for his undergraduate degree at Grinnell College in Iowa.

“I’m thinking of taking up Chinese,” he says, “but it may be quite difficult.”

He’s also the only member of his family to become an investment professional: All the rest are in the restaurant business. “My father was a chef–food is big in our family,” he says. Tasho himself loves to cook, though, and often does so to relax. He also loves music (he got that from his mother), and sings in several choirs.

Tasho co-founded TAMRO Capital Partners after serving for four years as the CEO and CIO of Washington. D.C.-based Riggs Investment Management Corporation (RIMCO). He started at RIMCO in 1990 as the managing director for equity strategy and management.

Tasho began his career as a trust investment officer for First American Bank in Washington, D.C. in 1980 and has worked in equity research and portfolio management throughout his career.

Tasho has an M.B.A. in finance and investments from George Washington University and holds the Chartered Financial Analyst designation.
