Public relations firm Brunswick Group has hired veteran hedge fund spokesman Tripp Kyle to boost its own alternative investments practice.
Kyle was named a partner at Brunswick's New York office. He'll focus on financial services clients, including hedge funds and private equity firms, as well as on shareholder activism, corporate governance and special situations.
Kyle helped build Finsbury Group's alternative investments practice, Brunswick said. He worked at Credit Suisse First Boston and Citigroup Smith Barney before joining that company.
