Recruiting firm Korn/Ferry International has hired a former hedge fund executive to lead its practice in that field.

Allison Walker was named a senior client partner and head of hedge funds at the California-based firm. Prior to joining Korn/Ferry, Walker was at Arden Asset Management, where she was a managing director and chief administrative officer.

Walker formerly worked at Och-Ziff Capital Management and Citadel Investment Group, and prior to her stint at Arden was co-head of global hedge fund practice at another executive search firm.

"Allison's expertise and in-depth experience are an outstanding addition to the Firm as we look to further expand Korn/Ferry's Hedge Fund Practice," Mike Franzino, head of the firm's financial services unit, said.
