Mesirow Financial brought on two new managing directors May 31 to expand the capabilities of the firm's global investment management unit, said a news release Thursday.
Michael D. Tadlock is based in the San Francisco area, a spokesman for Chicago-based Mesirow said in an email.
Mr. Tadlock will "play a "pivotal role in maintaining and building relationships with institutional consultants across the globe," the news release said.
Mr. Tadlock was previously a principal at Blackstone. A Blackstone spokeswoman did not immediately provide information about Mr. Tadlock's successor.
David Schrock is responsible for distribution of the company's traditional and alternative investment capabilities in the western region of the U.S. and is based in Denver, the Mesirow spokesman said.
Mr. Schrock was previously head of U.S. institutional for Jupiter Asset Management where he was tasked with helping to launch and build the London-based firm's business with institutional investors and consultants, the news release said. A Jupiter spokeswoman said in an email that the firm currently is seeking a replacement for Mr. Schrock.
"We are delighted to welcome David and Mike to the global investment management team," said Steve Swierczewski, senior managing director and head of the Mesirow global investment management team distribution, in the release, adding "their impressive industry backgrounds and expertise will further deepen our team's capabilities as we continue to expand our AUM and product offerings."
As of March 31, Mesirow managed $53.3 billion in regulatory assets.
