Jan 4 2007 | 10:22am ET

Dallas-based real-estate private equity firm Hawkeye Partners has added three top executives in the wake of raising more than $700 million for its new fund.

Jim Ballard, formerly a principal with The Staubach Company, joins as managing director of the venture group at Hawkeye, with responsibility for sourcing, underwriting and selecting the investment managers for the new Scout Fund I. David Smith will serve as managing director of finance and operations. Smith, a former p.e. specialist for Perot Systems, will oversee fund accounting, financial reporting, analytics, personnel, information technology and the legal team. Finally, former Invesco Real Estate assistant controller Jamie Kingsley comes to Hawkeye as vice president and controller.

“These three key executives—individually and collectively—strengthen our firm and enhance our abilities to build leading real estate investment management companies,” Hawkeye co-founder Claudia Faust said.
