Benjamin Charon joined alternative investment firm H.I.G. Capital as a managing director in the firm's capital formation group.
Mr. Charon will be based in New York and will be "responsible for business development and capital raising across H.I.G.'s global private equity platform" said a news release Wednesday.
It is a new position, said Jordan Peer Griffin, executive managing director at H.I.G. and global head of the capital formation group, in an email.
Mr. Charon was a managing director in Evercore's private funds group and was "responsible for capital raising and advising the firm's clients across private equity, private credit and infrastructure asset classes," the news release said. Evercore could not be immediately reached for further details.
Based in Miami, H.I.G. has more than $50 billion of equity capital under management, a figure that is "based on total capital commitments managed by H.I.G. Capital and affiliates," the release said.
