Global placement agent Atlantic-Pacific Capital has hired institutional sales professionals Kevin Imhoff and Jeff Hypes as principals in the firm’s New York and Chicago offices, respectively.
Imhoff will be responsible for covering the Midwest region, while Hypes will cover the West Coast/Southwest regions, the company said in a statement. The duo joins more than 30 associates in offices around the world, including New York, Greenwich, Chicago, San Francisco, San Clemente, Atlanta, London and Hong Kong.
Imhoff rejoins Atlantic-Pacific Capital from Eaton Partners, where he was a director responsible for sourcing and securing primary and secondary capital commitments from institutional investors. Beforehand, he was an associate in the Consumer Retail Group of the Investment Banking Division of Goldman Sachs, and prior to that, spent five years at DuPont Capital Management performing due diligence on buyout and venture capital co-investments, secondaries and fund investments.
Hypes was most recently a vice president in Lazard’s private capital advisory group, where he worked for nine years. In that role, he led fund placements across North America, with a particular focus on the Western U.S. and Canada. Beforehand, he covered high-net-worth, institutional, consultant and large separate account clients at Aurora Investment Management, a hedge fund-of-funds platform.
“Our platform covers over 5,000 institutional limited partners across the private equity, real estate, real assets, and private credit asset classes, most of which continue to expand allocations to alternatives,” said John Chase, partner at Atlantic-Pacific Capital, in the statement. “The addition of Kevin and Jeff reflects our commitment to key U.S. regions in order to continue providing best-in-class fundraising execution.”
Founded in 1995, Atlantic-Pacific Capital is one of the largest independent placement and advisory firms dedicated to alternative investments. The firm has executed more than 80 capital raising assignments aggregating over $60 billion for private equity, real estate, real assets, natural resources, and infrastructure fund placements since inception.
