Heuer succeeds Laurent Dupeyron, who led Paris-based Olympia for three years. He joins from Graham Capital, where he focused on fundraising for that firm's UCITS III-compliant fund.
Prior to joining Graham, Heuer worked at Tudor Investment Corp.'s private equity division.

Olympia said that Duperyon would leave the firm to pursue other opportunities.
