Martin Donnelly will join the Blackstone group as a managing director in its Sydney, Australia office.

Donnelly, who comes to Blackstone from ING Investment Management Australia where he served as deputy chief executive, will head business development and client relations in Australia and the Pacific Rim for Blackstone Alternative Asset Management. BAAM is a leading provider of customized hedge fund solutions.

Donnelly will join Sydney-based Blackstone MD Philip Levinson.

Said Donnelly: “Blackstone is one of the world’s leading asset managers. With Australia as one of the largest and most sophisticated markets in the region, I anticipate a growing demand for what BAAM offers both here and in the region.”

Prior to joining ING in 2007, Donnelly was a director of institutional business at Barclays Global Investors. Before Barclays, Donnelly spent seven years with Deutsche Asset Management, both as a senior associate director in business development and later as a vice president at DB Capital Partners.

BAAM, as of December 31, 2010, manages $US33 billion for its clients globally.
