NEW YORK (–Mayer Capital Advisors LLC, a recently formed fund of funds firm, hired Matthew Hoffman as its chief investment officer.

Mr. Hoffman previously was a vice president in the hedge fund group for Credit Suisse Asset Management, where his duties have been absorbed by others, according to a CSAM spokeswoman.
