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.
