Ascalon Capital Managers has lost its chief operating officer and gained a new Australia chief.

Jason Collins has left the firm to join BlackRock, where he will start as head of institutional client business in Australia on April 22. Collins had served as head of Ascalon's Australian arm.

In his place will be Robert Lance, Ascalon's new head of Australia. Lance will focus on relationships with Ascalon's boutique partners in the country.

"His is a strong and dynamic addition to our team at a time when Ascalon continues to grow," CEO Chuak Chan said.

Lance was a co-founder and CEO of DragonBack Capital prior to joining Ascalon. DragonBack was acquired last year by Double Haven Capital Management.
