Jan 10 2011 | 4:28am ET

Private equity firm Blue Harbour Group has hired two managing directors, including a hedge funder.

Jose Claxton was named managing director of capital strategies and client relations. He joins the firm from hedge fund Latigo Partners, where he was managing director of sales. Prior to his stint at Latigo, he was head of North American institutional client services for Lehman Brothers Alternative Investment Management, and was a member of the New Jersey State Investment Council.

In addition, Greenwich, Conn.-based Blue Harbour has hired Joseph Haslip, formerly assistant New York City comptroller for pensions, as managing director for public plan relations.

“These corporate governance trends—and the robust M&A environment and high levels of cash on corporate balance sheets—make it a particularly opportune time for Active Ownership investors like Blue Harbour,” CEO Clifton Robbins. “Blue Harbour is very pleased to provide institutional investors with two outstanding and dedicated professional resources to assist them in developing their approach to Active Ownership investing.”
