Dennis Tracey rejoined Simms Capital Management as sales director, a new position, according to Pamela Segal, director of marketing and client services. Ms. Segal also rejoined the firm, replacing Jim Tierney, who left to join Argus Investors' Counsel as director of marketing and client services. Mr. Tracey was senior vice president of institutional sales at Stonehedge Partners, a hedge fund manager; officials there did not return phone calls asking about a replacement. Ms. Segal was a marketing assistant at West LB; she will not be replaced, according to a West LB spokeswoman. Both Mr. Tracey and Ms. Segal left Simms in 2003 when growth, the investment style Simms follows, fell out of favor.
