The Hedge Fund Association, a New York-based hedge fund lobby group, has appointed new regional directors for its Southeast and Boston chapters.

Thalius Hecksher will take the helm in the Southeast while Robert G. Sawyer assumes the (newly created) regional director's post in Boston.  

Hecksher, global managing director of business development for Apex Fund Services, has over 18 years' experience working within the international financial markets. Prior to joining Apex, he was head of sales for EMEA at Linedata Services and before that sales director at Thomson Financial (now Thomson Reuters).

Sawyer’s practice at Foley Hoag is focused on investment advisers and private investment funds, including hedge funds, private equity and venture capital funds. As co-chair of the firm’s investment management practice, Sawyer assists advisers with the formation and structuring of domestic and offshore investment funds, as well as a range of regulatory compliance matters.

The HFA has U.S. chapters in the Northeast, Southeast, Midwest and on the West Coast and  international chapters in Europe, Asia, Australia, Latin America and the Cayman Islands.
