Highland Taps Terrell As Dir. Of Biz Development

Mar 21 2012 | 8:26am ET

Dallas-based hedge fund Highland Capital Management has tapped former investment banker Artis Terrell Jr. as director of business development.

Terrell has 14 years of investment business development and relationship management experience focused on the institutional marketplace. Prior to joining Highland, he served as principal at the New York-based Williams Capital Group, where he focused on sales, financial advisory and asset management for institutional clients. Before that, he was an investment banking associate at Hudson Knight Securities. Terrell served on the Louisiana Board of Regents for 10 years, including two years as chairman.

In his new post at Highland, Terrell is responsible for business development and managing strategic relationships with institutional investors, primarily public and corporate pension plans. He reports to Clay Shumway, head of business development and is based in the firm’s Dallas office.

“Artis’ extensive experience, particularly among public and corporate pensions, is a great asset for our global team and will help us better serve the needs of our investors,” said Shumway in a statement.

Highland Capital Management, with approximately $20 billion of assets under management, specializes in credit strategies, such as credit hedge funds, long-only funds and separate accounts, distressed control private equity, and collateralized loan obligations. Highland also offers alternative investments, including emerging markets, long/short equities and natural resources.
