Starr served as managing director and head of corporate finance at Boston-based Putnam since 1998. Previously, Starr worked as a senior vice president at investment bank Lehman Brothers and as a vice president at Morgan Stanley.
Since Goodbarn’s resignation, three other Janus executives have handled the CFO duties. Goodbarn left the firm less than a month after chief investment officer Jim Craig (see Charity Begins at Home).
Putnam has not yet named a successor to Starr, who begins work at Janus on September 28.
