Atticus Vet Zoraian Joins RiverEdge

May 29 2007 | 12:01pm ET

A former top trader and senior executive at Atticus Capital has joined hedge fund RiverEdge Capital Partners as head trader.

John Zoraian spent nearly a decade at the $12 billion hedge fund firm, first as CFO and later as senior managing director and head of the equity desk before joining RiverEdge, a global long/short equity shop founded two years ago.

Zoraian said he met RiverEdge founders Robert Lande and Jeffrey Siegel through his hedge fund consulting business, which he founded after leaving Atticus. RiverEdge was one of about a half-dozen clients, and expressed and interest in having Zoraian join the firm once it had gotten itself established.

The Irvington, N.Y.-based firm is ramping up its fundraising and marketing efforts, and recently hired Fortis Fund Administration and Banc of America Securities veteran Michael Scanlon to lead its marketing efforts.

According to firm founder and chief investment officer Jeffrey Siegel, Zoraian’s hire “is very much a tipping point for RiverEdge; that John joined our firm out of all the opportunities available to someone with his background and his character is extremely exciting.”
