The firm—which will also boost its U.S. presence through the acquisition of GLG Partners, expected to close next month—has hired relationship managers to focus on private banks in the Midwest, Southeast and West Coast. Jim Wing will work out of Chicago, George Kushner from Atlanta and Andreas Saucedo from Los Angeles. The firm has also hired Carly Turkus to work in its New York-based investor relations group.
Wing joins the hedge fund giant from Morgan Stanley. Kushner comes from Permal Group and Saucedo from Meridian Capital Partners. Turkus joins Man from Welch Capital Partners.
The three regional executives will report to John Barbo, who heads Man’s U.S. private client and financial intermediary business.
