Allison Shaw joined First Eagle Investment Management in New York on Aug. 21 as managing director and global head of consultant relations.
Ms. Shaw replaces Joseph P. Gill, who left First Eagle Investments at the end of 2022, a spokeswoman confirmed. Mr. Gill couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
Ms. Shaw will report to Matthieu Louanges, First Eagle's global head of institutional and head of non-U.S. wealth solutions.
Mr. Louanges said in a news release Ms. Shaw will collaborate "with relationship management and business development professionals across the entire firm, including First Eagle Alternative Credit and Napier Park, to elevate the firm's equity-oriented and alternative credit strategies among global institutional consultants and clients," the news release said.
Of First Eagle's $131 billion in assets under management as of June 30, roughly $53 billion was being managed on behalf of institutional clients, or just over 40% of the firm's total AUM, the spokeswoman said in an email.
Ms. Shaw comes to First Eagle from Macquarie Asset Management, where she served as head of consultant relations and public markets sales for the Americas, according to the news release.
A Macquarie spokesman couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
