Credit hedge fund shop GoldenTree Asset Management has hired a former Lehman Brothers executive to work on its business development.
Tom Humphrey has been named a partner of the firm and a member of its executive committee. He joins the $11 billion New York-based hedge fund from Barclays Capital after a two-decade career at Lehman Brothers. Most recently, Humphrey served as head of fixed-income distribution in the Americas and ahead of global commodity sales. He also played a leading role in the integration of the two firms after Barclays bought bankrupt Lehman’s North American operations in 2008, according to GoldenTree.
“GoldenTree is well-known for the strength of its credit markets investing, an area in which Tom has worked his entire career,” Robert Matza, GoldenTree president, said. “I’m looking forward to the firm benefitting from his deep experience in the fixed-income markets and client strategy.”
At GoldenTree, Humphrey will focus on firm strategy, client franchise development and the firm’s expansion.
