San Francisco-based JMP Group has promoted Kevin "KC" Lynch to president of its asset management subsidiary Harvest Capital Strategies.

Lynch will also continue in his role as chief operating officer at Harvest Capital, which he joined in 2008.

“…KC has been instrumental in building the institutional-quality infrastructure to position Harvest Capital Strategies for accelerated AUM growth,” said Joseph A. Jolson, JMP Group's chairman and chief executive officer. "More recently, he has taken on the added responsibility of managing our fund raising efforts and has been actively involved in developing our strategic growth plan."
