Hedge Connection Names New CEO As Vioni departs To Join Cerberus

Feb 28 2012 | 9:24am ET

Hedge Connection, a marketplace that brings together hedge fund managers and qualified investors, has named co-founder Rob Arthurs as chief executive officer. Arthurs is taking over from co-founder Lisa Vioni, who has accepted a position as managing director in the investor relations group of Cerberus Capital Management, where she will initially focus on communicating Cerberus’ distressed mortgage investment strategies with existing and potential investors.

Accoring to Arthurs, Hedge Connection will continue to offer hedge fund managers access to pre-qualified investors, a suite of valuable marketing services and Morningstar’s hedge fund database, one of the most comprehensive alternative databases in the industry.

“The past seven years at the helm of Hedge Connection have provided an exciting opportunity to build a robust platform benefitting both qualified investors and hedge fund managers,” said Vioni. “I am confident that my co-founding partner will continue to build on the strong foundation we created together. I am excited to begin a new chapter with Cerberus Capital Management, a multi-billion dollar private investment firm with an excellent reputation in the investor community.”

Arthurs added, “All of us at Hedge Connection thank Lisa for her many contributions to the company. I look forward to leading several new initiatives and strategic partnerships, including innovative networking opportunities planned for announcement later this year.”

Arthurs co-founded Hedge Connection with Vioni in 2005. He has led the company's product design and been instrumental in the strategic decisions and direction of the company's business.
