KPMG has added a hedge-fund industry veteran to boost its alternative investments team in the southeastern U.S.

Michael Cross was named director of account relationships at the firm, where he will both handle existing clients and drum up new business among hedge funds, private-equity firms and real-estate fund managers.

Cross has spent the past six years in alternative investments business development. Prior to that, he was a hedge-fund fundraiser and broker/dealer. He's also the president of the Southeastern Hedge Fund Association and active in several other industry groups.

"The alternative investments market in the southeast is growing and will continue to expand over the next few years, and in response KPMG is investing in resourced to meet that need," the firm's national leader for alternative investment audits, Al Fichera, said.
