The Blackstone Group’s fund of hedge funds segment, Blackstone Alternative Asset Management (BAAM), has announced that Olivier Meyohas is joining the firm as a managing director to lead its London office and business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Meyohas leaves behind Goldman Sachs, where he has worked for the last 16 years and served as a managing director and co-head of the Pension Advisory Group.
He takes over leadership of the London office from Gideon Berger, who is returning to New York to assume the role of chief risk officer after two years running the London office.
In addition to his new leadership positions, Meyohas will also have seats on the Executive and Investment Committees.
He will report directly to J. Tomilson Hill, The Blackstone Group’s vice chairman, and BAAM’s president and chief executive officer.
Hill has welcomed Meyohas’ appointment, stating that his deep knowledge of pensions will fit well with Blackstone, and that his addition will add tremendous value for clients.
