Apr 11 2014 | 11:22am ET

Eaton Partners, a global placement agent, has made three senior hires for its new secondary advisory group.

Michael Pilson, Alexander Mejia and Kevin Imhoff previously ran the secondary advisory business at Atlantic-Pacific Capital, counseling a wide range of clients on secondary market transactions. 

"We are extremely excited about adding Michael, Alex, and Kevin to our team.  As the private equity industry continues to mature, we believe that secondary activity will become increasingly prevalent and we now have the ability to provide our clients and our Limited Partner relationships with best-in-class secondary advisory capabilities." said Jeff Eaton, partner at Eaton Partners, in a statement.

Based out of Eaton's headquarters in Rowayton, Conn.,the Secondary Advisory Group will assist clients managing private equity, real asset, real estate, venture capital and illiquid hedge fund investments. Specifically, the team will assist general partners to strategically manage the sale of limited partnership interests within their existing funds and also raise new capital through stapled transactions, fund recapitalizations and fund restructurings. 

The team will advise limited partners on the purchase or sale of fund interests in the secondary markets. The team provides valuation work and end-to-end process management.

Founded in 1983, Eaton Partners raises institutional capital for investment managers across a full range of alternative strategies—private equity, real assets, real estate and hedge funds/liquid products.
