Anna Makki was named managing director and Yuhe Cong was named vice president at Marathon Asset Management.
Both are new positions with the credit money manager's health-care team, said Ryan FitzGibbon, spokeswoman for Marathon. They report to Evan Bedil, managing director and head of its health-care practice.
The hirings represent Marathon's expansion of its health-care investment team in response to the rapid growth of the health-care sector, a news release from the firm said Thursday.
"With an aging population and advances in technology, health-care investing has been an attractive sector for us for the last several years, a trend that has only increased over the past year and one that we do not see subsiding any time soon," Bruce Richards, Marathon's chairman and CEO, said in the news release. "In order to keep up with the growth of this sector, we have been focused on deepening our health-care capabilities to help our clients meet their investment goals, including developing robust sourcing channels with a strong pipeline of investments."
Ms. Makki was previously with Torreya Partners, a merger and acquisitions adviser to global life-sciences companies, while Ms. Cong was a senior associate with OFS Capital Management.
A spokesman for OFS Capital could not be immediately reached for further information.
Marathon Asset Management has about $22 billion in assets under management.
