The top hedge fund lobby in the United States has a new top flack: D. Brooke Harlow has joined the Managed Funds Association as head of marketing and communications.
Harlow most recently served as managing director of communications and public affairs at New York hedge fund Highbridge Capital Manageement. She also formerly worked at JPMorgan Chase, where she handled media relations for its global credit, emerging markets and private equity businesses.
In her new post, Harlow will take the lead on strategy and implementation of the MFA’s global business development and marketing initiatives, at a time when the hedge fund industry is being vilified for its alleged role in the global financial crisis. She will also lead media outreach initiatives to policymakers and the association’s members.
“We are delighted that Brooke has joined MFA in this vital role during such an important time for industry participants to work together on key issues and to speak with a unified voice,” Richard Baker, the former Republican congressman who leads the MFA, said. “Brooke’s in-depth knowledge of the alternative investment industry, proven communication skills and sound judgment are a strong addition to MFA as we continue to expand our membership and focus on critical issues that impact our members’ ability to serve their investors worldwide.”
