Northill Capital Beefs Up London Team

Apr 23 2012 | 8:10am ET

Northill Capital, the London-based asset manager founded by former BNY Mellon Asset Management VP Jon Little, has named a new chief financial officer and head of human resources.

Darius Berendji, who joins as partner and CFO, has worked for a number of businesses run by the Bertarelli Family, a key backer of Northill. These include the investment manager firm Kedge Capital, specializing in hedge funds and private equity. Berendji has been involved with Northill since its inception in 2010.

Cathy Jones, who joins as partner and head of human resources, was previously an HR director at BNY Mellon where she was head of the HR for the company’s EMEA asset servicing business. She was formerly human resources business partner at AMP in Australia.

Berendji and Jones join Little and Northill partners Rick Potter and Jeremy Bassil.

Northill has made a number of additional recent appointments to its team including hiring Hazel Vosper as head of risk and governance; Andrew Curtis as head of compliance; and Darren Butt as director of project management and operations.

Prior to joining Northill, Vosper had provided operational planning consulting for Barclays Wealth, Royal Bank of Scotland and Deutsche Bank; Curtis has been associate director of compliance at Hermes Fund Managers; and Butt had served as chief operating officer for Kedge Capital.

Said Little, in a statement:

“Northill has grown steadily since we founded the business in November 2010 in line with our long-term strategy to build a portfolio of high quality asset management businesses. We are pleased to welcome both Darius and Cathy as partners in the business and to have made a number of key additional appointments as we continue to invest in strengthening our team.”
