Jun 17 2010 | 8:33am ET

Glocap Search, an executive search firm focused on the financial industry, including the alternative investment space, has launched a high performance coaching practice.

The new practice is headed by Jonathan Katz, a licensed psychologist who has served as the performance coach for a variety of businesses such as hedge funds, asset management firms and professional sports organizations including the New York Rangers.

"We use Jonathan internally at Glocap and have found his ability to get the best out of our team to be a material value-add to our performance. Based on our own experience and the extensive feedback from funds he has worked for we are confident that many of our clients will benefit from his services," said Adam Zoia, CEO of Glocap.

According to the firm, Katz applies the principles of performance and communication psychology to improve the four key areas of organizations: leadership, interpersonal communication, individual performance and team effectiveness. Katz said Glocap’s extensive client base, particularly among alternative asset firms, will allow him to better connect with firms in need of his services.

“The best way to expand my practice is to join forces with a leader in the industry, and that’s what Glocap is,” he said.

Glocap is headquartered in New York and has offices in Greenwich, Conn., San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle.
