Broadreach Group, an executive search firm catering to the alternative investment and prime brokerage communities, has added Mark Schwartz as partner and global head of its rates, foreign-exchange and commodities search practice. Schwartz will be covering both the hedge fund and banking communities.

Previously, Schwarz served as a senior vice president in charge of institutional sales for rates, forex, commodities and e-commerce at Standard Chartered Bank in New York.  He also held similar positions at Lehman Brothers and NatWest.

“We are seeing increased activity in the futures markets, including currencies, rates and commodities, and our clients are looking to add talent in these areas,” said Brian Grover, founder. “We are pleased to welcome Mark, who brings knowledge and scope to this executive search practice area as we seek to help our clients build intellectual capital and succeed in the global marketplace.”

Headquartered in New York, the firm has offices in London and Tokyo, and will soon open offices in Los Angeles and Hong Kong.
