Blackstone Taps Ex- Goldman Exec. To Head London Office

Sep 9 2008 | 10:56am ET

Blackstone Alternative Asset Management, the $31 billion fund of hedge funds division of The Blackstone Group, has hired Olivier Meyohas as a managing director. He is tasked with leading the firm's London office and its business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Gideon Berger, who has led the firm’s London office since the end of 2006, has been named chief risk officer and will return to New York.

Prior to joining BAAM, Meyohas spent the last 16 years at Goldman Sachs in London, where he was a managing director and last served as co-head of the pension advisory group.

“The experience I have working with some of Europe’s largest pension funds will hopefully be additive to BAAM’s existing efforts to solve the complex investment challenges faced by the biggest institutional investors in the world—particularly in these challenging markets,” said Meyohas.
