Feb 1 2011 | 5:11am ET

Goldman Sachs has promoted a former head of its hedge fund sales team to co-president of Asia ex-Japan.

Yusuf Alireza spent three years at Goldman’s London hedge fund sales team, joining it in 1997. He became head of the group a year later, before becoming head of the European Funds Sales team in 2000. Alireza was named a partner and head of Europe, Middle Eastern and African fixed-income and foreign exchange sales in 2004.

He was named head of Goldman’s Asia securities division in 2008.

David Ryan, co-head of Asia ex-Japan investment banking and chairman of its South East Asia business, was named Alireza’s co-president. Both men are to join the firm’s global management committee.

“These appointments reflect the firm’s continuing strong commitment to Asia, which includes many growth markets that are critical to the firm’s global strategy,” CEO Lloyd Blankfein, President Gary Cohn and Head of Growth Markets  J. Michael Evans said.
