Highland Capital Management has hired a director of institutional client relations, a first for the Dallas-based hedge fund.
Casey Herren is charged with developing and managing relationships with institutional investors. He joins Highland from Vaughn Nelson Investment Management, where he also dealt with institutional client development and relationship management. Prior to that, he held the same post at New York hedge fund Atlantic Investment Management and Lazard Asset Management.
“Casey's strong experience in developing and growing relationships with institutional investors adds additional depth to our team, enhancing Highland's presence as a leading alternative credit manager, spanning hedge funds, private equity, and other alternatives," Shumway said. "He is a great resource for institutions to understand Highland's commitment to providing clients with high quality investment solutions. We also continue to seek other valuable additions to our team.”
