Kunho Cho will lead the New York-based hedge fund’s growth in the region. In particular, he is charged with overseeing its dealings with governments, regulators and its investors in Asia.

Millennium also said it had promoted Hyung Lee to head of Asian capital markets. Lee has been head of Asian fixed-income at the firm.
