The Blackstone Group's placement agency has lost another top executive in London.

Chris Leach is leaving—or has already left—Park Hill Group, Financial News reports. A managing partner at the firm, he covered fund distribution, joining in 2007 from UBS with Justin Bower to co-head its London office.

Bower left Park Hill in 2010 to launch FirstPoint Equity.

Leach was head of UBS' private equity fund group before his exit for Park Hill.
