HedgeMark Taps New EMEA, Americas Heads

Oct 10 2012 | 12:11pm ET

HedgeMark International, an independent managed accounts platform, has created new positions for two of its managing directors.

Jean-Francois Crousillat and James F. McKenna III, both of whom have been with the BNY Mellon affiliate since 2011, have been named head of business development for the Americas and head of business for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (plus Asia ex-Japan), respectively.

The two will report to Steven Lonsdorf, head of global distribution and president of HedgeMark Securities and Kenneth S. Phillips, founder and CEO of HedgeMark International. Both will be based in New York.

Crousillat came to HedgeMark from Bear Stearns and Citigroup and has deep experience in the area of hedge fund and enterprise position-level risk analytics. McKenna was with BNY Mellon Alternative Investmet Services before joining HedgeMark. Prior to that he was based in Europe with Société Générale's Lyxor division.

"We are experiencing substantial interest in the HedgeMark service models from institutional invesors around the world," said Phillips. "As an organization, we are commited to putting the resources in place that will allow us to best meet the needs and requirements of our clients. Both Jean-Francois and Jim are veterans of the alternative investment industry and bring unique skill sets to bear for our existing and prospective clients in the Americas and EMEA.
