West Mountain Names New Biz Development Head

Sep 8 2010 | 1:44pm ET

Multi-strategy hedge fund firm West Mountain has hired Michael Pruner to serve as director of business development. 

In his new role, Pruner will be responsible for driving marketing and business development efforts, maintaining investor relations, and acquiring new assets for investment by the firm. In addition, he will also contribute to West Mountain's due diligence and reporting requirements. 

"At this point, it's all about getting the word out, so we are very pleased to welcome Mike to West Mountain," said Paul Alar, managing director of the Atlanta-based firm. "I believe his extensive experience on the sell-side will greatly enhance our fund raising capabilities and increase West Mountain's assets under management to the levels that our performance deserves."

Pruner has been a sell-side research analyst throughout most of his professional career, including working at JP Morgan Chase and SunTrust Robinson Humphrey.
