Candlewood Adds Top Lawyer, Credit Analyst

Jun 9 2011 | 11:53am ET

Credit hedge fund Candlewood Investment Group has made a pair of hires, including that of a new chief operating officer.

The $1 billion New York firm said that Janet Miller has been named general counsel and COO. She joins the hedge fund from law firm Sidley Austin, where she focused on corporate transactions.

Candlewood also said it added A. Aadel Shaaban as a corporate credit analyst from Thales Fund Management. At Thales, Shaaban was a portfolio manager, in charge of that firm's distressed strategy.

"Candlewood is extremely excited to have added members to our team as talented and experienced as Ms. Miller and Mr. Shaaban," co-founder Michael Lau said.

The two hires follow two other senior additions Candlewood made in February, when it named Al De Leo head of trading and Gurdev Dillon CFO.
