Lasair Names Moore Vet. CFO

Jan 27 2009 | 6:22am ET

Lasair Capital has added a hedge fund industry veteran as CFO, it told investors yesterday.

John Suglia joined the year-old hedge fund from Aeneas Capital Advisors, which he co-founded a decade ago. Prior to starting Aeneas, he worked at Moore Capital Management, where he also served as CFO. He replaces Matt Gilman, who has left Lasair.

Former Blackstone Alternative Asset Management CEO Carrie McCabe founded Lasair last year, calling it a “next generation” fund of hedge funds shop. In a letter to investors on Monday, McCabe called Suglia’s hire a “significant addition.”
