Recruiters Heidrick Names Edwards Head Of Hedge Funds Biz.

Jul 22 2010 | 12:31pm ET

Executive recruiting firm Heidrick & Struggles International has a new head of its hedge fund practice.

Daniel Edwards—who helped build the Chicago-based firm’s hedge fund business—has now added that practice to his list of responsibilities. Edwards has been managing partner of geographies and regional managing partner for Asia-Pacific, as well as co-head of Heidrick’s financial services practice. Before his globe-trotting days, Edwards served as head of the firm’s Wall Street office and co-head of the hedge funds practice.

“Bottom-line, we are listening to our clients. Our asset management and hedge fund clients are dramatically rethinking their human capital strategies,” Edwards said. “Our cross-sector approach to human capital solutions positions Heidrick to be the leading provider of talent expertise and beyond.”
