Scott Lawin, who had been COO of the Drawbridge funds, left the firm in January for Moore Capital Management, where he is also the COO. Lawin worked for five years at Fortress.
The funds’ CFO, Kevin Treacy, departed two weeks ago. It is unclear what Treacy’s plans are, but Fortress quickly replaced him with Patrick Dennis, a veteran of hedge funds Raptor Capital Management and Eton Park Capital Management.
