Blackstone Names Berger To Be London FoHF Chief

Nov 13 2006 | 5:12pm ET

The Blackstone Group’s fund of hedge funds unit has named a New York managing director to head its five-year-old London office.

Gideon Berger, a member of the Blackstone Alternative Asset Management investment team, will move to the U.K. at the beginning of next year, where he will lead its business in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. He has been with the firm for four years.

“Gideon’s move to London follows closely on our decision to move Alberto Santulin to London earlier this year to lead our European investment team, as well as our decision to move Greg Hall to Hong Kong to lead our Asian investment research team,” BAAM President J. Tomilson Hill said. “As our investors become more global and we seek more investment opportunities overseas, adding more senior investment talent in Europe and the Pacific Rim makes sense.”

BAAM manages about $15 billion in assets, $4 billion out of London.
