Kevin Silva joined multistrategy hedge fund manager Carlson Capital as chief marketing officer.
Mr. Silva will focus on building relationships with the firm's institutional investors in order to “tailor investments to the needs of clients and partner with them in emerging investment opportunities,” said a Carlson Capital client letter obtained by Pensions & Investments.
The position is new, a spokesman said.
Mr. Silva joined Carlson from multiasset alternative investment firm Och-Ziff Capital Management Group, where he was a managing director with responsibility for strategic relationships. His duties have been assumed by others at the firm, said an Och-Ziff spokesman.
Carlson Capital manages $8.2 billion.
