John P. Boles joined smidcap equity hedge fund manager Harvey Partners as director and the company's first head of client service and business development, confirmed Alanna Weiss, a company spokeswoman.
Mr. Boles previously was a partner and managing director-client service and business development at Attalus Capital.
Attalus Capital moved out of the hedge funds-of-funds business and into managing single-strategy hedge funds last year. Patrick C. Egan, Attalus' founder, president and chief investment officer, said Mr. Boles' departure was related to the change in investment focus; Mr. Boles' marketing responsibilities had been for hedge funds of funds with a focus on Taft-Hartley plans.
Harvey Partners manages about $300 million in small- and midcap equity hedge funds.
