Jun 7 2012 | 11:45am ET

Dallas-based real estate specialist KeyPoint Capital Management has made two key appointments, adding Scott Crowell as director of operations and promoting Ali Robins to director of marketing & investor relations. 

Crowell comes to KeyPoint from Maverick Capital, in Dallas, where he served as fund accountant with responsibility for overall accounting, valuation, and reporting across several funds advised by Maverick.  Prior to Maverick, Crowell was a portfolio operations analyst and treasury analyst at Highland Capital Management, where he managed collateral and margin requirements for multiple financing facilities. 

Robins has supported marketing and investor relations since joining KeyPoint in July 2009.  Previously, she managed investor relations and developed marketing plans for Newcastle Partners. Robins also worked as a senior marketing associate, developing and implementing the marketing strategy and related advertising for Health Dialog, a healthcare consulting firm and as a research associate at Bellevue Research, an investment fund focused on the biotech industry.

Said Rod Hinze, KeyPoint managing member and portfolio manager, in a statement: “KeyPoint is committed to investing in the people, process and disciplines we need to continue on a sustainable growth trajectory while maintaining solid returns. Scott and Ali are critical to this objective, and we are delighted that they will be working with the firm in their new capacities.”

KeyPoint currently has approximately $50 million in firm level assets under management and specializes in liquid long/short investments in real estate-related U.S. equity securities.
