Mesirow Financial Holdings has hired a capital introductions specialist formerly of Credit Suisse Group to boost its fund of hedge funds' client relationship effort.

Sophia Damianou was named a vice president at Mesirow Financial International's client relationship team. She will focus on the firm's Mesirow Advanced Strategies unit, building relationships clients old in new in Northern Europe from Mesirow's London office.

"Since the opening of Mesirow Financial's London office in 2007, we have experienced a sizeable increase in our European client base, with the [Europe, Middle East and Africa] region now representing 24% of assets under management," Dermot Keegan, who heads that office, said. "The addition of Sophia to the team allows us to continue on this trajectory while still maintaining the highest level of client service."

Damianou most recently spent three years at Credit Suisse as members of the capital introductions team, covering the Benelux region, the U.K. and the Nordic region. She left the firm for Mesirow in last month.
