Lehman’s Mason Bolts For Halcyon, Henry Joins

Jul 13 2007 | 11:04am ET

Christopher Mason, former senior vice president of absolute returns at Lehman Brothers, has left the firm for greener pastures.

Mason quit Lehman’s alternative investment division in March to join the $13.6 billion Halcyon Asset Management as a senior vice president of client relations.

Lehman’s alternative investment division was described to be “in an absolute state of disarray,” by an industry source. Calls to Lehman for comment were not returned by press time.

In unrelated Lehman news, Emil Henry, the former assistant U.S. Treasury secretary for financial institutions, has joined the firm as a managing director in private equity. Henry will be based in New York and will focus on global investments in infrastructure.
