NEW YORK (HedgeWorld.com)–Mellon HBV Alternative Strategies recently expanded its staff roster, adding among others a new marketing chief, Charles Poznek.
Mr. Poznek, formerly a hedge fund investor-relations specialist for institutional investors at the New York-based Palladin Group, will report to HBV Mellon Principal Jonathan Bean. The appointment comes only weeks after Mellon completed its acquisition of the London-based HBV Group, (Previous HedgeWorld Story) which was established in 1999 and has seen its assets under management triple to roughly US$530 million over the last 16 months.
In the wake of the Mellon acquisition, other support staffers also were added to the alternative investment team, including a comptroller for the hedge fund group. Prior to the merger, HBV had about 30 staffers.
