New-York based C.L. Kempner Asset Management has hired Melody Bryant to help the firm ramp up its long/short equity hedge fund platform.
Bryant will work with company founder and managing partner Carl Kempner, who started the firm over 20 years ago as a family office.
Bryant herself has over 25 years’ experience as a portfolio manager. She began her career as an analyst for Oppenheimer Capital, worked as a portfolio manager for John M. Blewer and Levin & Co., and was portfolio manager, co-chairman and a member of the board of BKF Capital, a holding company for the asset management firm. She then became a senior portfolio manager and managing director for Neuberger Berman. Later, she also oversaw equities for a $30 billion sovereign wealth fund.
Prior to founding his own firm, Kempner worked at Drexel Burnham Lambert and on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange for Herzfeld & Stern before joining his father’s firm, Hamershlag Kempner & Co., one of Wall Street’s oldest partnerships.
