London-headquartered hedge fund GLG Partners has appointed Jeffrey Rojek as chief financial officer. Rojek replaces Simon White, who will become chief operating officer of the firm.
 
Rojek joins GLG from KMPG where he had been an audit and advisory partner in the firm’s New York financial services practice.
 
“Jeffrey’s knowledge, strong reputation and experience in the financial services field will be a significant asset to the firm as it continues to grow and develop as a publicly listed company,” said Noam Gottesman, co-CEO of GLG. “In addition, Simon’s role as COO will provide a valuable focus on the day to day management and development of the firm over time.”   

GLG has an estimated $24 billion in assets under management.
