LAKE OSWEGO, Ore. — Jensen Investment Management, a 100% employee-owned high-conviction equity investment management firm, today announced that Phil Bennett has joined the organization as its new Director of Institutional Sales and Client Service, effective July 11.

“We are excited to welcome Phil to the team,” said Eric H.
